An Easy Way To Help With Japanese Earthquake & Tsunami Relief Efforts

Thousands have lost their lives and many are still missing after a massive earthquake and tsunami hit in Japan last week.  The dire situation is still not over as they are dealing with the aftermath.  One of the first things that come to mind in this situation is finding a way to help.  While most of us can’t go over there to help we can give to some of the people who are over there helping.  Of course we can help with our prayers, and there are some of the ways you can help financially:

The American Red Cross International Relief Fund is stationed in the affected areas. Text REDCROSS to 90999 from your cell phone to donate $10.00 to the Red Cross. Click here to donate.

The Salvation Army is currently providing emergency assistance to those in need. To contribute, text ‘JAPAN’ or ‘QUAKE’ to 80888 to make a $10 donation. Click here to donate.

Heart to Heart International:  This organization is also aiding in the relief efforts.  Only 2% of all donations are kept to cover overhead.  That means 98% of what you send to them will actually make it to the quake ravaged areas.

  1. I think it is so great what you are doing, thanks for donating, and for all the great posts you put up here to help us save money! 🙂

  2. My mom was in Japan on business when the earthquake hit. She was getting into an elevator when it hit. She said the earthquake was horrible and the aftershocks were pretty bad too. She was terrified. I am lucky to finally have her home safe and sound. My heart goes out to all of the families that are affected by this tragedy and I applaud you for giving such a charitable donation to help people in their greatest time of need!

  3. I have a friend that lives in Tokyo, she was affected by the earthquake but did not loose her home. She was at work when it happened and slept there for several days since business building are built to withstand the quakes and homes are not. She was doing good but we have not heard from her since the Radiation became an issue! Thank you so much for helping!!!

  4. Japan holds an extra special place in my heart: I lived there for several years. My heart is hurting for the people of Japan. Thank you for being so generous and donating to help them recover.

    I am planning on donating to the Red Cross, at the very least. My whole family has been praying for the Japanese people.

  5. Thank you for donating! Seeing all those terrible images coming out of Japan… we need to help them.
