Red Cross Donation: Japan Earthquake/ Asia-Pacific Tsunami

I know this isn’t a deal or anything, but I recently discovered this site and thought I share it with you in case you would like to make a donation to the Canadian Red Cross and help Japan recover.

On Friday March 11, 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit Japan. This has triggered 4 metre waves in Japan and tsunami warnings across the Pacific coastline. Thousands of people are reported dead, and many more are injured or missing. The earthquake has caused fires and severe damage to buildings, leaving millions of households without electricity….
