March 11th Earthquake/Tsunami Relief

Not being active on Facebook anymore, and not being a TV watcher, the news of the tsunami hitting Japan came to me a bit later than it normally would. (I know–really stupid that I could rely on Facebook so much for the spreading of world news. I was a senior in college when a tsunami hit Southeast Asia, and I remember learning about it instantly.)

Here are some links that might prove useful if you are thinking about donating some money to the relief:
