My kids are putting together a fund raiser to raise money to help Japan.
I would appreciate any direction on which charity we should give the funds to.

Thanks

3. The Red Cross
after Haiti, I crossed Doctors without Borders off my list for their anti-American whining that was done for the sole purpose of getting more people to donate to them than anyone else.

I asked for best place to get help directly to the country and she recommended this one.
