In the wake of the horrible events that are still taking place in Japan, we here at NYCAviation wanted to do what we can to help the millions that are estimated to be in need of assistance after dealing with the earthquake, tsunami and possible nuclear disaster.

We have set up a donation page on FirstGiving.com, with all donations going directly to the American Red Cross’s Japanese Relief Fund, which brings food, shelter and all sorts of supplies and assistance to those that have lost everything. Please click here to donate, or click “Donate” on the widget.

For your donations, NYCAviation will mail you a luggage-style logo sticker for all donations at or above $20, or a logo t-shirt for donations at or over $150.

To claim your prize, simply forward to [email protected] your receipt from FirstGiving showing your donation amount, and also supply your address and t-shirt size if applicable.

Your donations WILL make a difference. Thank you all so much.
