The Grand Lodge of Japan has issued the following statement:

'The [Grand Lodge] office has received numerous offers of donations to assist with the disaster relief and it must be emphasised that while we are not soliciting donations the sheer volume of offers has necessitated that we establish procedures where those so desiring can make donations in the most convenient manner. We have established a "Tsumani Relief Fund" here in the Grand Lodge of Japan for any donations to be deposited. We will coordinate with the government of Japan to determine where these funds might best be used. Donations which are to be made by check can be mailed to:
