A Response from the Red Cross about Japan

C.B.-

Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, it seems as though you have received some incorrect information. The American Red Cross has made an initial contribution of $10 million to the Japan Red Cross, and is funding approximately half of the United Nation Food Programme’s operations in Japan. As longer-term plans are formed and pledges are fulfilled, the American Red Cross will make additional financial contributions to its partners to assist people coping with this disaster.

The disclaimer you mention states: “On those rare occasions when donations exceed American Red Cross expenses for a specific crisis, contributions are used to prepare for and serve victims of other crises.” In the case of the Japan relief efforts, with the crisis still unfolding, it is impossible at this time to have a final dollar figure that will be needed. Therefore, the American Red Cross is still gratefully accepting donations to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief fund. If you are interested, you may make a donation by:

· Calling 1-800-REDCROSS

· Texting REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation (charges will appear on your cellphone bill)

· Donating online at www.redcross.org

I hope this information is helpful. If there are any further questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at (716) 878-2372. Thank you for your interest, and have a great day.
