|What I donated on Cityville|
Here's a way that I found that you can donate to Japan through social games (and for free).
Zynga is a social network game developer located in San Francisco, California, United States. The company develops browser-based games that work both stand-alone and as application widgets on social networking websites such as Facebook and MySpace. [wikipedia]
They are now offering 100% price donations when you buy premium items that are designed for this purpose. And yes, I am saying "buy", but in fact you won't be spending a dime (well real ones anyway).

If you do not already play these games, and you think that they are a waste of time and would probably never play they in your life, you might want to take 10-15 minutes to set-up play them and donate the free money and remove the applications later. If you have more time to spare, you can level up 5 levels and gain another 5 city cash and buy one more crop (shouldn't take more than 30 minutes to level up 5 times)
Another thing you might not have known is that facebook has given all its users some "facebook credits" last year for free. Each user got a different amount of these credits based on some criteria that I don't know. For me, I got 20 credits (equivalent to $2.00) and I used them to buy more Cityville premium cash to donate for Japan. I figured I won't be using them for anything useful, and this cause seemed very worthy.
