Yoko Ono: Japan Crisis and Red Cross

March 14, 2011 (CableMuse.com) The American Red Cross announced Friday it is offering assistance to the Japanese Red Cross following Friday’s powerful earthquake and subsequent tsunami. Thousands are missing and hundreds are presumed dead and the numbers continue to rise in Japan this Monday evening.

Red Cross

This evening, on Pierce Morgan’s CNN show, Yoko Ono, cultural icon, film-maker and widow of John Lennon endorsed the Red Cross as the primary American recipient of donations to Japan from America. In his Monday interview Pierce Morgan asked Yoko, “You’ve been very active in the last few days in encouraging people to donate to the Red Cross. Are there other ways that you think people should be helping?  What is the best way for America in particular to help here?

From the CNN studio in New York, Yoko Ono responded, “As of now, I found, that there was no definite fund / foundation in Japan that we can send money to.  So Red Cross is it”. I sent mine to Red Cross…”

According to the Red Cross., “In the first 24 hours, the Japanese Red Cross dispatched 62 response teams. These medical relief teams – made up of about 400 doctors, nurses and support staff – are already providing assistance in affected areas through mobile medical clinics, as well as assessing the damage and needs of the communities affected”.
