If you are thinking about what’s happening in Japan and how you can help, one of the only charities which operates in the developed world is the Red Cross.

American Red Cross The American Red Cross is already accepting funds earmarked for Japan. Here is a link:


In addition, with ongoing evacuations in the United States, the Red Cross Safe and Well website is a secure and easy-to-use online tool that helps families connect during emergencies like tsunamis. There are several easy ways to register yourself or search for a loved one on the Safe and Well website: from a computer, visit, from a smartphone visit or from any phone, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) for help registering.

Those who want to help can go to and donate to Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami. People can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation to help those affected by the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific.

British Red Cross If you are in the UK the British Red Cross has a disaster fund and are in talks with the Japanese Red Cross but no commitment as yet.
