If You Want To Help Japan


Share post:

I know a few Japanese reporters from my days working on international news, and one of them is from the region hardest hit by the quake and the tsunami. She has e-mailed today to say that, if people want to aid the victims of this double disaster, one of the best ways to do so is through the New York Japanese-American Lions Club Charities. One hundred percent of the money donated through JALCC will go to relief efforts, which may not be the case at other organizations.

If you want to give, you can send a check payable to JALCC (or Japanese American Lions Club Charities, Inc.) to JALCC at 15 West 44th Street, 11th Floor, New York, NY 10036 . The JALCC asks that you write Japan Earthquake Relief in the memo area on your check. Also be sure to provide your name and address so that the JALCC can give you a receipt for your donation. If you are in Manhattan, JALCC has volunteers collecting donations on the streets around Grand Central Station.

For more information, please contact members of the JALCC Relief Fund Committee: Todoroki (516) 769-1683, Ishikawa (917) 622-5987, or Kano (914) 433-3210, or e-mail [email protected].
