How you can donate to the Japan relief effort

March 14th, 2011 by Rose DesRochers · 3 Comments

Help Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Victims

The shocking images in the aftermath of Japan’s 8.9 magnitude earthquake might have you asking yourself  “What can I do to help? I live so far away?”

Even if you’re thousands of miles away, there is a way that you can offer your support to the earthquake and tsunami relief effort.

Canadians wishing to help support relief efforts underway are encouraged to contribute by:

  • Donating online
  • Calling 1-800-418-1111
  • By texting the word ASIA to 30333 to make a one-time donation of $5.
  • By contacting their local Red Cross office. Cheques should be made payable to the Canadian Red Cross, earmarked “Japan Earthquake/Asia-Pacific Tsunami” and mailed to the Canadian Red Cross National Office, 170 Metcalfe Street, Suite 300, Ottawa, Ontario, K2P 2P2.

Those in the US wishing to help support relief efforts can donate via American Red Cross.

Japan has often donated when other countries have experienced disasters, such as when Hurricane Katrina impacted the United States.

Those in the UK may make donation through the British Red Cross.

Alternatively, donations can be made to the Japanese Red Cross through Google’s Crisis Response site.

PayPal has also set up an online store to take donations. Make an immediate $25 contribution.

Worldwide

Working with other organizations such as the International Medical Corps, D.C.-based organization GlobalGiving has launched the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund.

Now is our time to help.  I made a donation. Will you?

    I made a donation! You can donate $10 via text messages here in the US, too. It’s amazing to see footage of the streets of Japan filling up so swiftly. My heart goes out to them.

    Thank you I would like to add that even though it seems like the tsunami took place a long time ago to us, rebuilding Japan will be something that takes a long time to finish. Also, I believe Japan just got hit by another earthquake on Monday, so they really need our help. I will see what I can do myself.
