This is a little bit off topic about what we normally write about here, but I think it is for a good cause and it is worth mentioning.
Living Social, a group coupon website, is matching $5 donations that are made on their website today. It is an easy way to donate a little bit of money to the American Red Cross Japan Relief fund.
This is from their web page referencing the donation matching:
Due to Friday’s 9.0-magnitude earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent after shocks, Japan is suffering from what its prime minister is calling the “worst crisis since WWII.” The country’s northern coast has been totally devastated, leaving the land and the people in ruins. Just like you, we here at LivingSocial want to lend a hand, so we are going to match your donations. For each $5 donation through this offer, we will also donate $5 to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami fund. Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by this tragedy, and hope that by merging our efforts with yours and working directly with the American Red Cross, we can help with immediate aid and long-term recovery plans in Japan.”
