Apple CEO Steve Jobs has sent a message to Apple’s staff in Japan regarding the recent earthquake and tsunami. The message, which has been posted to Mac Rumors, was reportedly sent to all Apple employees. It reads:

“To Our Team in Japan,

We have all been following the unfolding disaster in Japan. Our hearts go out to you and your families, as well as all of your countrymen who have been touched by this tragedy.

If you need time or resources to visit or care for your families, please see HR and we will help you. If you are aware of any supplies that are needed, please also tell HR and we will do what we can to arrange delivery.

Again, our hearts go out to you during this unimaginable crisis.
Please stay safe.
Steve and the entire Executive Team”

Apple has already responded to the disaster by setting up a page for accepting Red Cross donations through iTunes and by delaying the launch of the iPad 2 in Japan; anecdotal tales from one of Digg founder Kevin Rose’s friends in Japan—who works for Apple—indicate that the company is doing all it can to help its employees and neighbors in this trying time.
