Donate to Japan quake relief via iTunes and more!
Following the disaster caused by the magnitude 8.9 earthquake and tsunami in Japan (Leviathan attack?), Apple has posted a donation page on iTunes where you can use your iTunes account to make a secure donation to the American Red Cross and its Japanese relief fund.
Apple is taking no percentage of the profits from these donations whatsoever made through iTunes go to the American Red Cross. Steve Jobs recently said that, via the iTunes Store, Apple may have the largest credit card database of any online retailer, so rigging up a donation page on the iTunes Store seems like a good way to raise the potential for donations to the Red Cross and its relief efforts in Japan.
