What to Know Before you Donate
Little explanation is needed for the devastation caused by the 2011 Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. Even for a modern country like Japan, the results have been crippling and downright terrible to hear. Recovery is a long rough road ahead and help is still needed. However much or little you give can help someone in need, someone displaced by this disaster. It's not too late to donate to charity at all. As anime fans I think we can all feel the same way about it, no doubt.
Before you donate check the charity in question. Organizations such as the Red Cross are noble to donate but you might not see your money go where you want it too. Simply put The American Red Cross nor the United States State Department have been requested for help. If you want to better assure your contribution will go where it needs to go, Charity Navigator can help you navigate which charity is likely going to give you the most for your money. Still if you want to donate to the Red Cross feel free.
