Relief Aid

This is a bit more of a solemn post than usual, but I felt it necessary. As probably all of you know, both New Zealand and Japan have suffered earthquakes, and the fatalities have been mounting. So with the help of a beautiful (and slightly tragic-looking) pin-up from Serge Birault, I'd like to bring your attention to some relief organizations that could use your help.

Most of these listed will be Canadian or American organizations, so please please feel free to comment and list more from your area. I'll add them to the post.

The Canadian Red Cross (Webform directly for Japanese Earthquake + Asia-Pacific Tsunami)

American Red Cross (Amazon Portal)

New Zealand Red Cross

MÉDECINS SANS FRONTIÈRES (Doctors without Borders)

World Vision Canada

New Zealand Developers for Earthquake Relief (Christchurch Earthquake)

Netherlands Red Cross (Japan Relief page in dutch)

Google Crisis Response (Japanese Red Cross Society)
