    Are you interested in helpng those who lost so much?

    I'm not sure if things like this are allowed here but I thought it would be good to have a thread dedicated to the relief effort for the people who have lost so much due to the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan. Please add any other relief efforts that you know of that people from around the world can give to.


    Here's one that I know of


    The crew of the U.S. Navy carrier, the USS George Washington (CVN73), are asking for donations of blankets to help the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.


    If you have a sailor on board the USS George Washington, please send the blankets directly to him/her.


    If you do not know a sailor aboard ship, please send blankets to:
    ...USS George Washington
    Public Affairs Officer
    Box 10.FPO AP 96650-2801

    I thought I answered this one too,
    I must be mistaken, my memory isn't what it used to be.

    I am sure that I didn't. I am not as consistent as you.

    ROMOS

    Oops, I need to be consistent, please excuse me, of again,sheeeeeeeeshhhhh!!!!! it's not easy being inconsistent.
    FISH-O

    Oh I do it all the time. Super easy!

    @ TOPSHAPE My purpose for this thread was to give people easy access for donating aide to the people of Japan. I just thought it would be handy to have different options for people who were looking to help out. If you establish a relief fund, you would be more than welcome to post the information here.

    International Medical Corps - Donate to our Emergency Response Efforts


    http://www.care2.com/go/z/19950028


    An International Medical Corps emergency response team is on the ground in Japan and is coordinating with local officials to support response efforts and fill critical gaps. The team is assessing post disaster conditions and prepping critical supplies for delivery to the earthquake zone. They will focus their efforts on earthquake and tsunami affected communities that have not yet been reached. The team will also offer logistical support as needed to local authorities based on International Medical Corps’ experience in disaster response including following the 2004 Southeast Asian Tsunami and the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

    Buy a T-shirt to support the relief effort (approx. $18.50 from the sale of these t-shirts will go directly to the Japanese Red Cross):

    If you're in the US and would prefer to help out directly, you can donate by texting "REDCROSS" to 90999. The text will automatically donate $10 to the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief fund of the American Red Cross.
