Donate to the Japan Society

Posted in Good by Shannon South on March 16, 2011

My heart is breaking for Japan and I’ve been thinking of ways I can help. Should I give a percentage of my sales? Should I urge people not to buy my bags this month, but donate the money instead? Should I just make a personal donation and be done with it?

I just read a couple articles (here and here) that left me questioning where and when to donate so that they will best be used for relief efforts in Japan. This morning, I worked my shift at the coop and came across a poster urging donations to the Japan Society, so I checked it out. It seems to me, they may be the best place to send contributions: “100% of your generous tax-deductible contributions will go to organization(s) that directly help victims recover from the devastating effects of the earthquake and tsunamis that struck Japan on March 11, 2011.”

    Don’t know either…wish there was a more clear answer. Thanks for your thoughts on it though.
