How do you donate safely to help Japan?

Japan is suffering. The March earthquake and tsunami have dealt this country a terrible blow.

If you want to donate to the cause you need to be very careful about where you send your money. There will be many groups climbing onto the donation bandwagon and they will all want their share of your money.

The government is suggesting that donations should go to the Canadian Red Cross. The Japanese Red Cross are well organized and they are reaching out to the people of that nation to help them in the best way possible. If you send money then it will be used in the most effective way possible.

We all hope for the best and do what we can to help in their time of need.
