How you can donate to Japanese relief
If you want, here’s how you can help.
When it comes to world disasters, the Red Cross is usually where we start. According to the Saskatoon Home Page, the Canadian Red Cross is already on the ground in Japan.
You can donate online at the Red Cross’ website, or by calling their national donation line at 1-800-418-1111. Locally, you can get in touch with your local Red Cross outlet, or mail a cheque earmarked to: “Japan/Earthquake/Asia-Pacific Tsunami” at Canadian Red Cross National Office, 170 Metcalfe Street, Suite 300, Ottawa, Ontario, K2P 2P2.
Or, you can text “Red Cross” to 90999. Ten bucks will be donated from your monthly cell phone bill to relief efforts.
Global Giving and Oxfam are also set up to take online donations, which will be directed to Japanese care.
