Trusted Japan Disaster Relief Agencies

This image by Philippe Lopez/AFP/Getty Images graphically shows the aftermath of the quake and tsunami that struck Japan. To view more images visit HERE.

As can be expected, the bottom feeders are once more rising to the surface spamming mail boxes everywhere with claims of being a disaster relief agency. They have secured some 'good sounding' web names which give an air of legitimacy, but don't be taken in, because if you do, they will be the only benefactors of your gift. The agencies listed here can be trusted to see your donation does the good you intend for it to do. Of course there are many other legitimate organizations, and as long as you are familiar with them support whomever you will. But be warned, some low lifes just have no conscience and will try to profit on the grief of others.
