In the aftermath of last week’s devastating 8.9 earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, many organizations are sponsoring or coordinating donation efforts to provide relief to victims and help rebuild the afflicted areas of the country.

PayPal is covering all processing costs for donations to a number of nonprofit organizations assisting in the effort. Donations can also be made to Doctors Without Borders, which is sending  medical teams to Miyagi Prefecture.

No time to get online and fill out donation information?  You can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 from your phone.

We encourage our community of medical professionals to share information about additional disaster relief efforts for Japan by commenting on this post.
