Apple iTunes accepting Red Cross donations for Japan quake and tsunami relief

ITunesRedCrossApple is accepting donations to the American Red Cross' Japan earthquake and tsunami relief fund through its iTunes Store.

Donations can be made in amounts of $5, $10, $25, $50, $100 and $200. According to iTunes, 100% of donations go to the Red Cross.

"Your gift to the American Red Cross will support our disaster relief efforts to help those affected by the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific," the iTunes listing says. "Your support will enable the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to victims of all disasters. On those rare occasions when donations exceed American Red Cross expenses for a specific disaster, contributions are used to prepare for and serve victims of other disasters."

Connect to the iTunes donation page.
