Mercy Corps

My friend in the Portland, Oregon, area put a notice on her Facebook wall about donating to Japan through Mercy Corps, an organization I hadn't heard about before.

Besides providing emergency assistance to the people of Japan, they're doing a lot of longterm work around the world, from Afghanistan and Guatemala to Lebanon and Zimbabwe, in terms of community building.

In case you're interested in donating, too, you can learn more about Mercy Corps through their main site here, which is really detailed, and blog here. Your donation is also tax deductible in the United States as Mercy Corps is a 501(c)3 corporation.
