Japan Disaster Please Donate

I have a dear girlfriend who, for her upcoming 30th birthday, has requested for her friends not to buy her gifts. She has requested that we donate to the Red Cross instead. I think it's a fantastic idea - Shan, kudos to you!

Singapore is very blessed indeed. Our high COE prices and epidemic of ERP gantries is nothing compared to the triple whammy Japan is facing now - earthquake + tsunami + nuclear threat.. BIG ouch.

If you would like to help, the Singapore Red Cross Society has begun accepting donations for the Japan disaster fund. Money will be collected until April 13th and monies will go towards the relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction efforts for survivors.

Those who wish to make a donation may do so via:

- Cash donations at the Singapore Red Cross at 15 Penang Lane from Mondays to Fridays from 9.30am to 9pm, and on Saturdays and Sundays from 9.30am to 6pm.

- Cheque donations made payable to the 'Singapore Red Cross Society' and sent to the Singapore Red Cross at 15 Penang Lane, Singapore 238486. You should indicate at the back of the cheque the following: Japan Disaster 2011, the name of the donor, contact number and address.

- SMS donations by text messaging 75772. For every message, $50 will be donated to the fund. Each SMS carries a charge of 30 cents.

Customers of OCBC, DBS and United Overseas Bank can also make a donation via ATM, mobile and Internet banking. Donors can get more details by logging on to the banks' websites.
