Sending Help to Japan

Japan earthquake and tsunami

After suffering a massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake (the strongest in over a century) and devastating tsunami this morning, Japan continues to reel from aftershocks and loss of life. Mother Nature's destruction leaves many of us with a feeling of helplessness as we watch the aftermath on the news. In addition to sending our thoughts and prayers, we can do more. We can send monetary aid.

Below are some of the most favorable charitable, non-profit aid and relief organizations currently talked about on Twitter:
