How to Donate Money Directly To the Japanese Red Cross and Other Charities

- Google has set up a Japanese Crisis Response page with a direct donation link to the Japanese Red Cross. Donations are accepted in Japanese yen. $20 is approximately 1600 yen.

Donations are made through Google Checkout. If you don't have a Google account you can quickly set one up to make the donation, then take it down again if you don't want to keep the account.

- To donate to the American Red Cross, text REDCROSS to 90999 on your cell phone. This will send them $10.

- To send money to the Salvation Army for Japanese relief, text "Japan" or "Quake" to 80888 to make a $10 donation.
