Lightbulb Raising funds and awareness for the earthquake and tsunami in Japan

I know that many members have been affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Many are looking for a way to help out in any way they can.

However, it gets tricky for us to determine which charitable events, t-shirt sales and fundraising efforts are legitimate and how much money is going to each charity.

When those things get associated with or promoted through the forums and if the money isn't handled just right, people may think of the forums as misleading them.

Add to that the fact that many charities have strict rules in place about who can raise funds "in the name" of their charity through cause marketing without their permission to use their logo or name, things start to get pretty complicated.

To simplify things, for those that want to help out, for the purposes of the forum, I think it's best that we just direct people to donate directly to the established relief agencies that are in place there.
I have put up a donation bar at the top of the T-ShirtForums.com site that will show for this weekend (March 18-20th 2011) with quick access to donating directly to the Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund.
Here's a link to donate directly to the Red Cross: https://american.redcross.org/site/D...rm1&df_id=5052

If you have a different charity that you'd like to donate to, here's a link to a site that evaluates the different charities that are working in Japan to show which ones are the most efficient in how they use their funds:
