As we’ve all seen, the devastation in Japan is unbelievable. Aside from the lives lost, the World Bank is estimating the damages could cost $235 billion and take five years to rebuild.

Designers across the US are offering their support with some chic fashion, with proceeds benefiting the victims of the tragedy. See below, click and buy for all your friends!

Tory B loves Japan.

Tory Burch is donating 100% of proceeds from their Japan Relief T-Shirt to the American Red Cross, through September 15, 2011. Aside from the fact that the $29 tee helps an important cause, we have to say: really really cute. Tory will also throw in free standard shipping.

In case you didn’t know, the spade is Kate’s new lil logo!

Kate Spade has made this Support Japan Tote and is selling them for only $18. All 100% of proceeds will benefit the Japanese Red Cross Society. That should equate to a lot of cashola because the last time I checked tote bags cost only about .50.

I’d wear this when I work out, if I ever worked out.

Opening Ceremony has a cool, Red Cross Japan Tee for sale, with 100% of proceeds benefiting the American Red Cross. The $30 tee can be worn as an oversize tee (as shown) or with the sleeves cut off, if you’re a guy.

I seriously have been meaning to buy a red handbag to go with all my black.

If you’re in the market for a new handbag, spend your bones on one that helps Nihon. Rebecca Minkoff has three red Japan Relief handbags available for your perusal, and she’ll donate $100 from each sold to the American Red Cross. Prices range from $295 to $495.

If you’re not into these items, you can always donate to the Red Cross by texting REDCROSS to 90999 (they simply add $10 to your phone bill for the American Red Cross in support of Japan). Have more you’re willing to share? Good for you! You can always donate any amount straight through their Web site here. Skip your Friday night out and do it.
