Sorry for my ignorance here, but what is Yayasan Sin Chew?
I'm willing to put in something, but just gotta check the credibility of the organisation first.

To donate directly to a Chinese Non-profit, a good choice is JetLis One Foundation. Jet Li is an ambassador for the Red Cross Societyof China. His fund, as of 4/15/2008, has raised RMB 10,677,267($6,590/RMB 46,130 from Paypal donations)

The site is in Chinese only, but I have read it. One key point to know about your donation there:
1. The FULL amount of your donation will be transferred to the Red Cross Society of China.
The website provides full transparency on how its funds are distributed.
I Googled the foundation and found quite a bit of press coverage, so I felt comfortable posting it as a donation destination.
FINALLY! You can now donate directly to the American Red Cross ChinaRelief fund. The link is provided below, before you donate, please readthe paragraphs regarding fund use:
Additional information regarding relief efforts by the American Red Cross is provided here
http://www.redcross.org/news/in/ ... hinaEarthquake.html
A recent post in this group mentions the possibility that donationsto the American Red Cross does not fully transfer over to the Red CrossSociety of China. I am attempting to reach the local director of theRed Cross in my area for a clarification on the exact use of fund foreveryone, but probably wont get an answer until tomorrow afternoon.
If anyone has any clarification on the matter please let everyone know ASAP.
All this being said, ARC does have a four star rating from Charity Navigator for its effective use of donations.http://www.charitynavigator.org/ ... catid/2/cpid/43.htm
And your donation will be used specifically for the Chinese Relief effort.
However, your donation maybe be put to best use by directly wiringmoney to the Red Cross Society of China (listed in the CHINA section)or through Jet Lis One Foundation (listed in the INTERNATIONALsection) rather than the American Red Cross.
More updates to come.
