Folks, we're all aware of the current state of affairs in Japan. Earthquake and tsunami. Now a reactor potentially melting down. It's easy to sit back and think "Japan is a wealthy country, they'll take care of it." Given no help, maybe they would. Eventually. But a lot of people would suffer and likely die in the meantime.
Remember that old adage "treat people the way you'd like to be treated"? Well, if I were in their shoes I'd welcome any and all help. If you can, give. There are many organizations you could give to. I would suggest the Red Cross as a place that's guaranteed to get your money somewhere it's needed. Don't favor the Red Cross? A simple Google search should yield plenty of other places.
