Two weeks after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Los Angeles communities and businesses are rallying to raise money and send supplies to the displaced, injured and homeless. There will be more need for aid in the months and years to come, no doubt, but here are some opportunities close to home for you to lend a hand.


You can donate to tsunami and earthquake relief efforts through the KCBS/KCAL partnership with the American Red Cross.  To make a donation, visit CBSLA.com or text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 from your phone.
