The CEO of Red Cross, a non profit foundation is making over a half million a year plus. He is one of many highly paid people that work and run the Red Cross. That means only a small portion of every dollar you give really makes it to the people in need.

    If you want to help, do a little online research first to see what foundation is really helping the cause that you want to donate to. This info is widely available online, right down to detailed reports of administration cost. A little effort on your end will make that donation go allot further.
    Just like at Haiti a year after and it looks the same "red cross we have the money we just don't want to use it all at once". That's sad while millions of ppl lost everything ... Nice work red cross

    No this isn't humanitarian. This will benefit apple more than it ever would japan. It's a publicity stunt to try look like the good guys, nothing more.

    The best thing that online retailers or stores like apple can do is out a donation link up. You can't hate on apple, it's the easiest way to help out, and the fastest.
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!
