On March 11, 2011 at 2:46PM (JST), an 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit northern Japan, triggering fires, blackouts, general anguish and fear, as well as tsunamis that caused widespread devastation and that adversely affected a nuclear power plant.

Further devastation is inevitable. In the aftermath of Friday's crisis, people have gone missing, the death toll has risen, new scares have surfaced, and suffering and discomfort has accumulated.

Please join Tufts' Japanese Culture Club in helping. We hope to come together and give hope for the people in Japan. Furthermore, we hope to provide direct aid in the form of donations to those affected.


  1. For people who can read Japanese this site seems to be the up to date media aggregation site. They have a whole section on the donation groups, and it seems like the red cross (both Japanese and American) are considered to be pretty reliable.


  2. Please check out this link as well.
    It has a list of organizations that offer relief support and tips regarding making charitable donations.
