After reading the controversial news about how the Red Cross Society of the Republic of China handled the collected fund in Taiwan, and about the news on how the Facebook handled netizens’ on-line protests against the ROC Red Cross, if you haven’t contributed and are still contemplating on making a donation to Japan’s recent earthquake and tsunami, the following info that I have collected through reliable sources may help you make a decision.
