American Red Cross: Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami
A record 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck Japan on March 11, near the city of Sendai. It generated a powerful tsunami that caused widespread destruction across the region.
The American Red Cross and its humanitarian partners are working together to meet the needs of those impacted by this disaster. Your financial contribution will support their ongoing efforts to provide medical care and relief assistance.
Please note that your credit card will be charged in U.S. dollars.
Privacy Notice: If your donation is $250 or more, Amazon Payments will share your name, credit card billing address, e-mail address and the date and amount of your contribution with the American Red Cross, and the American Red Cross will provide you with a receipt for your donation.
Thousands of restaurants across the country will participate in the UNICEF Tap Project during World Water Week 2011 (March 20-26).
Dining in one—and donating $1 for the tap water you would normally receive for free—is a great way to help UNICEF provide lifesaving water and sanitation to kids around the world.

Following the disaster caused by the magnitude 8.9 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Apple has posted a donation page on iTunes where you can use your iTunes account to make a secure donation to the American Red Cross and its Japanese relief fund.
100% of donations made through iTunes go to the American Red Cross; unlike every other corner of iTunes, Apple is taking no percentage of the profits from these donations whatsoever. Steve Jobs recently said that, via the iTunes Store, Apple may have the largest credit card database of any online retailer, so rigging up a donation page on the iTunes Store seems like a good way to raise the potential for donations to the Red Cross and its relief efforts in Japan.
