The 8.9 Friday earthquake and resulting tsunami has devastated Japan, leaving hundreds dead, thousands homeless, and enormous damage in its wake. Aid relief is already underway. And organizations have stepped up to provide a means to accept donations for the disaster victims.  You can help support emergency relief efforts by donating to one of the many organizations listed on the Network for Good web site. The American Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, and the Salvation Army are among those providing immediate emergency assistance.

I’m impressed by these organizations ability to swiftly mobilize resources and emergency services to those affected by this horrible disaster. I’m also impressed by the swift means to announce and collect worldwide donations. This natural disaster fundraising works like a well-oiled machine and is crucial to getting the needed aid to the disaster zone. As the drama unfolds, the death toll is expected to rise.
