Since 1881 this volunteer run humanitarian organization has been running into disaster, providing emergency relief, teaching dingbats like me CPR, offering shelter, gathering blood products, collecting money at Christmas, giving support to American military families, etc. When you want to talk charity, they are the super charity! At this time of political unrest, natural disaster, economic uncertainty they are working tirelessly on. Turns out it is really easy to help them. They have this amazing website. Two clicks and you can donate money to Japan. Three clicks and you can donate blood. Four clicks and you can become a volunteer. Got to love it.
