Where to donate to help Japan

Japan-based food writer Elizabeth Andoh is using the following automatic reply to her e-mail. I don't really have much* to add, except to say I miss you Japan; get well soon.

*If you pray, consider adding a request for the 50 brave volunteers who have stayed at the nuclear plants trying to bring them under control. Their heroism should not go unrecognized.

"If you wonder how you might offer assistance, I urge you to consider a contribution to one of many organizations providing disaster relief here. You may wish to consider one of these:

Japanese Red Cross:

Doctors without Borders:

International Medical Corps:

CARE:

NetHope:

Japanese Salvation Army

Thank you.

Thank you very much for this post.
My mother country is facing such a big disaster and we are in deep sorrow.
But I believe we can re-construct a new country together hand in hand.
Help from overseas makes our heats very warm.
Thank you very much for your help.

Thanks for this post, Blake.

I'll also direct my readers to it.

I can't imagine how you feel, but know if it were a place where I visited and loved, I'd be more overwhelmed than I am now.

It's such a world tragedy with no end in sight.

We'll keep the prayers going. They definitely need all the help they can get.
