Help the Japanese, Australians and the New Zelanders

Post by SachiA » Sun, 13 Mar 2011 7:25 pm

Firstly this not an advertisement it is just a general appeal.

Hello all Expats and whoever uses and visits these websites help The Japanese, The New Zealanders and The Australians.

They are in need of all of us than any one else donate whatever you can even a single dollar makes a difference. Donate in any way you can.

I do not know how to organize this but I am sure some of you guys will have some knowledge how to to collect the charity money articles, etc and send it thorough proper channel to reach the needy in these disaster stricken countries. Please bring your knowhow. Let me know how I can contribute.

If this does not work go to any disaster charity websites and contribute there

Thanks

I would have a look at the Red Cross (or similar) websites for each of those countries, they probably have details.

For Japan, please refer to this: http://www.google.com/crisisresponse/ja ... e2011.html

This may sound harsh but please don't just donate anything to any entity claiming to help Japan. Please refer to the following articles why (and what you can do about it):

Thank you Nakatogo and Queenminnie. That is very good advice. Go to your own country legitimate charity websites I.e.; red cross, msf, etc. Be very careful of the scammers. I went to British redcross and msf UK safe place.
