Now is a good time to send a donation to help the victims of the worst disaster that has struck Japan since the dreaded American atomic bombs destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. All you have to do is send a text and you can donate $10. The American Red Cross raised over $32 million in a similar campaign after the Haiti Earthquake.
How? Text to the following number: 90999 and type in REDCROSS. I did this and immediately got a reply asking to confirm the donation. It's as easy as that.
The Salvation Army, which has had a presence in Japan since 1895 is also providing relief. Text QUAKE or JAPAN to 80888 to donate to SA's relief efforts there.
You can also visit these organizations websites at the following links to make a donation via credit card.
