2011 Sendai Earthquake: How to Help

I borrowed the following How to Help guide from my friend Sarah who borrowed it from The Daily What. Given what has occurred as a result of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, all efforts to spread the word about how to help are absolutely necessary. 

Here's the blurb from The Daily What full of ways you can provide aid to those suffering from the recent events in Japan. Even if you can't afford to donate your time and money, post a link to The Daily What post about how to help on your facebook page, blog, twitter, or other social media venue. At the very least, please keep the victims and their loved ones in your thoughts this weekend. 

2011 Sendai Earthquake / How To Help: President Obama released a statement earlier announcing that “[t]he United States stands ready to help the Japanese people in this time of great trial.” Below is a list of charities and relief organizations you can donate to in order to help bring aid to those affected by the worst earthquake in Japanese history.
  • The American Red Cross has set up a special designation for disaster relief efforts in Japan. To donate, click here, or text REDCROSS to 90999 to instantly donate $10.
  • International Medical Corps says it is putting together relief teams and supplies to aid Japan “and other affected countries.” Donate here.

  1. I also came across this great article that highlights how Japan's degree of preparedness helped save thousands of lives. I can only wish that other nations will be able to follow Japan's example so as to help save lives in the face of another future disaster.
