How To Help Japan

Picture: AP/Kyodo News

With Japan suffering multiple earthquakes and tsunamis today many of us are wondering what we can do to help. I've put together a list of organizations and websites that will help the people of Japan and others in the Pacific. The need is money, not goods. Please donate what you can to help survivors of this very large disaster.

Please Donate Cash

Patrick Rooney, executive director of the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University, recommends giving ", not food, water and clothes. There's a much higher shipping cost for supplies and it's easier for disaster organizations to get cash and use it as they need to."

Remember to check the authenticity of the web site before donating online.

Let's do what we can to help. The need is going to be deep.
