Wondering what you can do to help Japan?

Simple. Here are a few options:

If you live in the U.S., you can text “REDCROSS” to 90999 to make a $10 donation to Japan earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief (info via @RedCross). From the comfort of your cellphone.


If you live in the U.K., Save The Children has launched a £3 million appeal to help Japan.


Wherever you are, you can go to the Medical Teams website to donate or even propose help if you’re a doctor because there is a shortage in Japan.


For a web-based contribution, Mercy Corps has a batch of banners that you can embed to your website or blog to help collect funds. Just like this one:
