The Salvation Army is in Japan (and has been since 1895) and helping with disaster relief. The best way to help from here is with cash; it’s much easier to transmit there, doesn’t spoil, doesn’t require expensive and slow shipping, and can be put to just the right use. There are 4 ways to contribute money to the Army’s relief efforts in Japan.

  • Text the words “Japan” or “Quake” to 80888 to make a $10 donation.
  • By phone: 1-800-SAL-ARMY
