Canada (Japan Earthquake/Asia-Pacific Tsunami)

  • Donating online

  • By texting the word ASIA to 30333 to make a one-time donation of $5*
  • By contacting their local Red Cross office. Cheques should be made payable to the Canadian Red Cross, earmarked “Japan Earthquake/Asia-Pacific Tsunami” and mailed to the Canadian Red Cross National Office, 170 Metcalfe Street, Suite 300, Ottawa, Ontario, K2P 2P2.

One quick additional note: I am not advocating donating to “faith-based” organizations. I am advocating helping Japan, but would just as soon see the money go to a secular organization that isn’t going to try capitalizing on the tragedy to increase their number of worshippers. Still, better to help than not.
