Celebs tweet prayers for Japan

The devastating 8.9 magnitude earthquake in Japan and subsequent tsunami has not only media organizations but the Twitter-verse buzzing.

Celebrities like Alyssa Milano, P. Diddy and stars from "Glee" are tracking the news and tweeting prayers, hope and ideas on how we can help.

As the news developed early Friday, Lindsay Lohan was apparently glued to CNN for the latest updates, as she tweeted a photo of the coverage unfolding on her television along with the message, "My mommy just woke my sister and i up to this! god bless those that are in fear."

She's not the only one shocked and hurt by images of the devastation:

Yoko Ono tweeted earlier, "Sending love to all friends & family in Japan & praying for you. We are with you. Let's help one another as much as we can love, yoko." Along with former "Star Trek" star George Takei, she's also telling fans to help out with the relief effort. Ono has since tweeted a link to a message she wrote, stating how devastated she was by the news.

"My dear people of Japan," Ono begins. "I feel numb now, as if I was there myself and hit with this disaster as you have been. Only just recently I visited Tokyo, and was delighted how beautiful, clean and quiet the city was! I didn’t expect a disaster like this to happen to the country I love so much."

Her message goes on, "I feel deeply for you for having experienced the earthquake that was the severest in the history of Japan. It must have been so, so horrible. I extend my sympathy and love to each one of you. I’m very sorry that you had to go through what you went through. My heart is with you all the way."

      They could feel even better by donating some of their immense fortunes... unless they're really saving up for that awesome new bag or car.

    I've already donated what I have left to redcross. It's not much, but I guess something is better than nothing...

    What did I say this time CNN that you wouldn't post it? You people puzzle me to no end. You let trolls post obscene and offensive messages constantly.....but me posting a good will message for another country doesn't cut it. I think you people enjoy reading and posting everything perverted...even on your belief blogs. I post a comment of good will to another country going through a tragedy and it's not posted. I'm done with you and your "only for perverted, racist blogs!"

    That's not funny-to make a joke about a serious situation. I have a friend over there still that nobody has heard yet whether he is ok or not. His family has not been notified. I pray he is ok along with many other people still missing-SHAME ON YOU!

      I wish the best for your friend as well as the rest of the population with this disaster. I'm a little tense too. My boyfriend's mother & sister went to Tokyo last week (til next) for a much awaited visit. We have not heard from them yet and that plays a lot on your mind. So I know how you feel. Best of luck to you!
