LivingSocial Will Match Your $5 Donation To Red Cross For Japan Relief

Here's a deal you really, really shouldn't pass up: donate $5 to the American Red Cross for the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami fund through LivingSocial and they'll match it, 100 percent.

The daily deals site has already raised over $1.5 million. But only a few hours are left till the deal expires at 1 PM eastern standard time, so act fast.

The site provided a short explanation for the deal:

Due to Friday's 9.0-magnitude earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent after shocks, Japan is suffering from what its prime minister is calling the "worst crisis since WWII." The country's northern coast has been totally devastated, leaving the land and the people in ruins. Just like you, we here at LivingSocial want to lend a hand, so we are going to match your donations. For each $5 donation through this offer, we will also donate $5 to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami fund. Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by this tragedy, and hope that by merging our efforts with yours and working directly with the American Red Cross, we can help with immediate aid and long-term recovery plans in Japan.

To donate, go to the deal at LivingSocial's site.
