Sendairect donation fund. Link.

A dear friend set up the Sendairect fund:  Tuesday, March 22, 2011 at 1:51pm
She writes -

 Many close and personal friends have expressed interest in donating money for relief in Sendai. For those who are interested in contributing, we've set up a PayPal account specifically for raising money to put in the care of a * local of Sendai, Japan.

We've got approximately one week to raise funds for the use of purchasing supplies which will be brought back to Sendai by * herself, and she has volunteered to photo-journal the process to keep us up to date with the whole process. Hopefully this way community members who contribute will be able to see direct relief in their donated funds.

It is important that you include a note with your donation. Something along the lines of "This donation is being put in the care of **for Sendai tsunami relief and I am aware this is NOT a tax deductible donation to a non-profit organization"

It is also important to realize that if we have an overwhelming response to this fundraising effort, there may be a situation where we will raise more funds than that which *can carry back in food supplies on her upcoming trip. In this event, we will discuss with the community and figure out how best to help the community with the remaining monies.
