Please lend a hand for Japan!
We have all seen the heart aching imagery of the Earthquake and Tsunami that struck Japan on March 11, 2011.
This is our call to action.
The Ogawa Family, together with the Red Cross, is challenging donors to donate for Japan disaster relief. Every tax deductible dollar you donate, the Ogawa family will match equally in contributions to the Red Cross up to $500,000. Together we can donate One Million Dollars to the Red Cross.
Crowdrise and the Ogawa family will cover all transaction related fees so 100% of your gift will be doubled and sent to the Red Cross to support disaster relief efforts to help those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
