Japan is in need of every help that they can get. I despise people saying that Japan is a rich country so it doesn’t need donation! How can anyone say that in this time of calamity? Japan’s economy has been in the red and they are actually in the big debt which is 200% of GDP before the earthquake and tsunami devastated the country. So, with these calamities added plus the scare of nuclear power plants leaks, Japan really needs every cent, resource and manpower we can give. Below are the list of organizations where you can send your donations.
