The Green Cross is making it easy to donate to their Japanese Relief Fund.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 in the next couple of weeks.

It has been a little over two weeks since a magnitude 8.9 earthquake rocked Japan and resulted in a devastating tsunami that has impacted most of the coastal cities and placed in jeopardy several nuclear reactors. While most of the world remains focused on preventing a potential meltdown, San Francisco medical marijuana organizations the Green Cross and the San Francisco Chapter of Americans for Safe Access (SF-ASA), have launched a fundraiser drive to benefit the Japanese Red Cross Society.

"We live in a coastal city vulnerable to earthquakes and tsunamis, and the images and stories coming from Japan serve as stark reminder about what is possible," said Kevin Reed, president of The Green Cross. "We feel compelled to help with the relief efforts."

Both organizations have dedicated links on their website homepages to provide more information about how individuals can contribute. To make it easy to give, The Green Cross is offering registered patients and caregivers the opportunity to add a credit/debit donation to each delivery transaction they make in the city. And SF-ASA will be collecting donations at their next meeting on April 12, 2011.

“Our goal is to raise $5,000 in the next couple of weeks," said David Goldman, spokesperson with the San Francisco Chapter of Americans for Safe Access. "We realize it's not a whole lot, but we figure every little bit helps!"
