Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Relief: How We Can Help

According to the BBC News: Japan's most powerful earthquake since records began has struck the north-east coast, triggering a massive tsunami. Cars, ships and buildings were swept away by a wall of water after the 8.9-magnitude tremor, which struck about 400km (250 miles) north-east of Tokyo. A state of emergency has been declared at a nuclear power plant, where pressure has exceeded normal levels.

Officials say 350 people are dead and about 500 missing, but it is feared the final death toll will be much higher.

Aside from the inevitable public relations crisis in Japan (adhering to the theme of this blog), due to the recent catastrophic events, the heart wrenching plight of Japanese citizens is an immediate call for urgency.
