From State Senator Marty Golden’s office:

Brooklyn – State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) today is urging residents of the 22nd Senate District to support the American Red Cross in their efforts to assist those affected by the March 11th Japanese Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami.

Senator Golden is asking neighbors and community organizations to consider making a financial contribution to support the American Red Cross by either phone, internet, mail or via text. Those interested in donating should call 1-800 RED CROSS, or visit, or text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10.00, or to mail a contribution, please send it to:

American Red Cross
P.O. Box 4002018
Des Moines, IA 50340-2018
*Please indicate Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami on the check’s memo line.

Senator Marty Golden stated, “As the images of destruction and devastation in Japan are featured on our news programs, in our newspapers and our computers, many of us are wondering what he can do to help our fellow citizens of the world who have lost so much. Our monetary support will help the citizens of Japan rebuild and at the same time bring hope to the people.”

For additional information, please contact Senator Golden’s office at (718) 238-6044.

  • DO NOT DONATE TO RED CROSS, THE PEOPLE OF HAITI ARE STILL WAITING FOR MONEY THAT WE DONATED TO THE REDCROSS. THEY ARE SCUMBAGS. research before you donate. from my research doctors without boarders is the best organization so far. do your own studying though.

      What the Rat says is true.

      also how can you not believe him! he wrote it in CAPS!

    • levp

      Caps or not, the message is true.
      Médecins Sans Frontières is way more useful American Red Cross. Like, helping actual people…

  • Aren’t we so glad that Marty Golden has told us about the situation in Japan, and what we should be doing about it? Because most of us never get the news from that far away.

    • good point, maybe hes going to get a cut off the top for it

      • We’ll probably find out that he moonlights as a phone operator for the Red Cross’ Crisis Relief unit. Has to keep busy, you know.

    Red Cross’s CEO has a 7-figure salary…I wonder where will the donation go first?

  • Rosie

    Agreed. I never give to the Red Cross. This goes back to WW11, when my cousin said that they charged for the coffee that they gave out.
    I will give to Doctors Without Borders.

      My father told me the same thing. He won’t give to the Red Cross either. We give to the Salvation Army – Doctors without borders is another good charity

      • MY father said the same thing too. The Salvation Army gave away coffee, and more.

        Interestingly that came into my mind this morning.

  • ALSO, japans printing billions of dollars right now. to donate money to them would be like setting US dollars on fire…which might help this depression, but im sure the red cross was just going to horde it anyways
