My heart really goes out to the people in my home country Japan.
Watching the footage of the destruction was unbelievable, and the events following have been catastrophic and
my heart aches at what is happening in Japan.
According to the stories I heard from my family and friends in Japan,
Right now , most organization request that people make donations in the form of $money$ that can
be used to appropriately purchase what is mostly needed.
If you are kindly going to donate some money to help Japan,
I suggest following organizations.
1. Kyoudou Bokin ( Akaihane ) Disaster Relief to JAPAN EARTHQUAKE
is a good place.
I am joining the fundrasing event for Japan this weekend and money raised will be donated to this organization.
2.I have made my private donations to '
Winds Japan' _Winds_Japan__English_Edition
Its a small organization but donation go directly to the people in need.
3. Here's the link you can donate directly to RedCross Japan. Resources related to the 2011 Japan crisis
I hear so many different opinions about Red Cross (especially RedCross US ),
Personally, somehow i am not 100% sure that
all donations to Japan through Red Cross overseas would actually reach Japan.
