There are quite a few relief efforts within Japan and outside as well, organized by us 外人 (gaijin) as well. I'm trying to collect some of those that are still ongoing.
“Hundreds of readers in the United States and other parts of the world have asked me how they can help the survivors of the devastating earthquake that struck Japan on March 11. There are many places to donate money, and that’s a wonderful thing to do, but direct aid is also cherished by survivors.
My office location is perfect for managing a direct-aid operation because it’s close enough to the primary damage zone that we can physically get there to help, but far enough away that mail delivery is working. So we quickly set ourselves up to run this operation, called Socks for Japan.“
Anime and Manga bloggers for Japan is still accepting donations for Shelterbox and Doctors Without Borders. I believe they are trying to raise $5000 and may be almost there.
