I would like to mention GlobalGiving and the Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Relief Fund, so buyers know where their donationg will be going.

    Vivek I have a suggestion that has been scientifically proven to cool nuclear reactors in case of disaster. Liquid nitrogen is a supercold cryogenic liquid which can cool nuclear reactor plants without causing any damage.

      Reginald Nice Vivek! But it might be logistically difficult. Liquid nitrogen requires atmost care to be transported. After the tsunami, no road would serve that purpose. Also, liq.nit. is only at 3 Kelvin - we'll need lots of it against the thermonuke reactor.

    bekoshun What exactly will the donations be used for? Will the donation money be dispersed to other relief groups or will it be used to purchase food and medical supplies that will be given to those in need in Japan?

      Kevin Conroy These funds will be disbursed to organizations working on the ground in Japan that are providing relief. We have confirmed that International Medical Corps and Save the Children are doing great work and need support. We are also in the process of contacting other organizations on the ground in Japan.

      Cynthia So, the donations will be used for the people or for the organizations?

    • Kevin Conroy
      Kevin Conroy 85% (or more if you chose to cover fees during your donation) will go to help people in Japan (aka programmatic services if you speak development jargon). 15% will go to cover GlobalGiving's administrative overhead and fundraising costs. To learn about all of the amazing things this 15% overhead does, see:... Read more »

    Justin Just wondering, how much of these donations go directly to the cause? I'm aware most organizations take a small portion of the donations to stay up and running, and im curios exactly what percent. thanks^^

      mononofu Here is a breakdown of this and other Japan relief charities from Charity Navigator: http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=content.view&cpid=1221 That can give you some of the information you seek, I think.

    • Kevin Conroy
      Kevin Conroy Great question. GlobalGiving retains 15% of donations to cover administrative and fundraising expenses, however, unlike other charities, you can chose to cover some or all of this when you make your donation so that 100% of your base donation goes to the people of Japan (aka programmatic expenses)
