Japan

ABC has a number of vivid before/after photos of the devastation in Japan. The quake moved Japan by eight feet. According to the police chief in Miyagi province, “more than 10,000 people are estimated to have died in his province alone.” NPR also has an update on a second explosion in one of Japan’s nuclear plants.

From George Takei: Today we are all Japanese. Give $10 to help. Text REDCROSS to 90999, or click http://ow.ly/4ctzx. For an alternative to the Red Cross, you can also give to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund.

Doctors without Borders

Save the Children (link from tammy212). And from Alethea Kontis, “You can  also text JAPAN to 20222 to donate $10 straight to Save the Children for Japan relief.”

PayPal donation site to various nonprofits (link from Tom Smith)

Richelle Mead links to Charity Navigator, “an excellent site that reviews charities and provides tips on which are the most legitimate to give money to.”

Thank you for that link, and sorry you got screened. Still trying to figure out spam management settings for the comments.

For those who want to give but via a secular (not religious) organization, a good one is www.humanistcharities.org

Thanks.

Thanks! I just donated $25 through PayPal. Times like this, we need to work together, even if only through donations, to help people through a disaster (in this case, 2 or 3); especially when it's something like this, due to forces beyond any rational or irrational being's control.
