The American Red Cross is, of course, already hard at work to help our friends in Japan:
The American Red Cross is accepting donations to help in the wake of a devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Those who wish to donate can do so at RedCross.org or make a $10 donation by texting REDCROSS to 90999. The money will go to those affected by the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific.
The American Red Cross says the Japanese Red Cross Society has mobilized 11 teams into the heavily-damaged communities. The U.S. organization said it is in touch with its global partners in the damaged Pacific nations and prepared to help when/if needed.
Please also consider donating blood to your local Red Cross to ensure local blood supplies – they always need it.
