Print  E-mail
Our thoughts are with the people of Japan, many of whom have lost loved ones, homes and livelihoods. Since early Friday morning, the American Red Cross has been in close contact with our colleagues in the Pacific region to offer our support and learn more about the humanitarian needs. The Japanese Red Cross has indicated it would be grateful for financial support from the American Red Cross for the relief efforts. 
How you can help:
Go to www.redcross.org and donate to Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami. You can also donate $10 by texting REDCROSS to 90999 from your mobile phone to support our disaster relief efforts in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific.
To locate loved ones in Japan:
To help people find their relatives, a family link web site has been launched by the International ommittee of the Red Cross (ICRC). That link can be found on www.icrc.org/familylinks
