Font Aid

I guess this is one step further than the poster-for-aid (see my previous posting here). But doing something that is your skill and using it to promote a relief effort should not be sniffed at. Designers' skills are not in need directly (I've never felt more useless as a designer), so perhaps its good to simply do what you can.

Font Aid is an already established process which gets designers to contribute a glyph to a font which is then sold to raise money – for Japan in its latest effort.

Meanwhile, the Japanese Red Cross – established, active, required by government to help out in disaster situations and also taking your donations and giving money directly – seems a good place to donate if you want to give without buying something.
