If you would like to assist the Japanese relief effort, you can go directly to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to make a donation.

“Many members have contacted AARC indicating a desire to help our friends in Japan,” says Executive Director Sam Giordano, MBA, RRT, FAARC. “AARC encourages you to give any amount you can to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. Thank you for any help you can provide.”

The AARC currently has 57 Japanese members, including many living in and around Tokyo.
