How To Support The Earthquake/Tsunami Relief Effort in Japan

March 16, 2011

Many ways to help.

I doubt that I have to explain the recent tragedy that has struck the people of Japan, and I’m probably not the first to inform you of the relief effort and the various methods of donating to the cause. But if you’re still unsure how you can help, please consider the following options:

On the web:

Visit RedCross.ca to make a donation to the Canadian Red Cross
Visit SalvationArmy.ca/donate/ to make a donation to the Canadian Salvation Army
Visit Unicef.ca to make a donation to UNICEF Canada

On your phone:

In Canada,
— text “ASIA” or “ASIE“ to 30333 to donate $5 (The Canadian Red Cross Society)
— text “QUAKE” to 45678 to donate $10 (The Salvation Army in Canada)
— text “GIVE” to 45678 to donate $5 (UNICEF)

In the US,
— text “JAPAN” or “TSUNAMI” to 20222 to donate $10 (Save the Children Federation, Inc.)
— text “4JAPAN” or “4TSUNAMI” to 20222 to donate $10 (World Vision, Inc.)
— text “MERCY” to 25283 to donate $10 (Mercy Corps)
— text “SUPPORT” to 85944 to donate $10 (ADRA Relief for Japan tsunami victims)
— text “MED” to 80888 to donate $10 (Assist International Medical Corps)
— text “JAPAN” to 80888 to donate $10 (Salvation Army)
— text “REDCROSS” to 90999 to donate $10 (American Red Cross)

In person:

Although I work in an industry that is usually based on crazy, meaningless partying.. every now and then those reckless activities are applied to supporting a greater cause. And I am proud to see the abundance of events that are currently being organized to raise money for Japan, and most importantly where 100% of all proceeds generated are being donated. So if you were already planning on going out (and even if you weren’t), I urge you to seek out and attend any of these events in your city!
