Disaster in Japan: How to Help!

The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION of REALTORS® has watched with horror at the events in Japan since a 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck off shore on March 11, triggering a tsunami, unimaginable devastation and a nuclear crisis that is still unfolding.

As in the case of the recent earthquakes in New Zealand, NAR has identified four funds that the association believes are well equipped to provide disaster-relief services. NAR urges members who want to make a donation to consider one of these four organizations.

“REALTORS® build communities here in the U.S., but we also have a role to play in the global community, as well. With that in mind, we want to express our heartfelt concern and support for the people of Japan during these trying times,” says NAR President Ron Phipps.

Jason Watabe of Mercer Island, Wash., NAR President’s liaison to Japan’s four real estate associations, is working with the Seattle-King County Association of REALTORS® to develop additional support programs. “We cherish our business relations in Japan,” he said. “And we have to show our friendship by extending financial support in providing the victims food, water, heat and shelter for tonight and tomorrow.”

Here are brief descriptions of the NAR-recommended funds along with helpful giving tips from CharityNavigator.org.

AmeriCares
AmeriCares is a nonprofit global health and disaster relief organization whose passion to help is matched by its ability to deliver. In times of epic disaster, daily struggle or civil conflict, AmeriCares restores health and saves lives by delivering donated medicines, medical supplies and humanitarian aid to people in need around the world and across the United States. Donate to AmeriCares’ Japan relief.


Habitat for Humanity International
Founded in 1976, Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) is an ecumenical Christian housing ministry. HFHI seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Donate to HHI’s Japan relief.

UNICEF-USA
The United States Fund for UNICEF was founded in 1947 to support the work of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) by raising funds for its programs and increasing awareness of the challenges facing the world's children. The oldest of 37 national committees for UNICEF worldwide, we are part of a global effort to save, protect and improve children's lives. Donate to UNICEF’s Japan relief.

World Vision
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. Donate to WorldVision’s Japan relief.
