The Red Cross is the key aid organisation collecting donations for relief efforts following Japan's earthquake and tsunami.


The Japanese branch of the organisation is overseeing around 80 teams on the ground, but donations are being taken at branches around the world.


You can make online donations through the British Red Cross or you can download donation forms to post. Cheques should be made payable to British Red Cross and sent to British Red Cross, Japan Tsunami Appeal, Ref: ON2011, Freepost NAT21787, Paisley PA1 1BR.


The the American and the Philippine Red Cross are taking donations by SMS, which the Red Cross piloted after the earthquake in Haiti last year. For donations from the US, text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. In the Philippines text REDAMOUNT to 2899, or DONATEAMOUNT4-digit M-PINREDCROSS to 2882 for Globe subscribers, and REDON to 4483 for Smart subscribers.

3. No thanks, feeding family down the street instead.
Feel bad for those in Japan but donating hard earned money out of Country while I see people suffering here is just stupid.
Besides, Red Cross is not a good 'go to' for these things.
