Is there anything this guy can't do??

Edit:Out of curiosity how many people from this site have helped japan in anyway they can??

@below exactly we need more developers like him.

@Larvanian anything helps even if it's a little bit.

I gave £10 through PSN. I wanted to give more but I couldn't since I went over my monthly spending limit.

I helped organize a drive with a large group of other people. We've raised about $200 in one day. And tomorrow will be day 2.

I sent $30 to the Red Cross..

fatstarr2708d ago

I donated 60$ thru red cross and amazons help japan.

my university raised over 1000$ in one week and the 70 Japanese exchange students are helping us
to find out what else we can do.
last year my school raised about 10k for Hatti in 1 month. we are planning events and things everything goes to Japan.

My friend's family was evacuated (he has to stay as he's in the Navy) and they're living with me free of charge. Does that count? ^^

Oh, and I bought that theme from PSN for $10.

I spent my weekly entertainment budget on a red cross donation. I'm waiting to hear back on a summer job right now, and I'll definitely give more if that comes through.

labaronx2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )

and last years flooding in Nashville, i've seen the goodness there is in people and plan to donate 10 over psn when i get paid, also sending in can goods at work... which helps as fear of food contamination grows

my thoughts are with the Japanese rightnow

Jocosta2709d ago

Same here I bought the $50 PSN Theme, the only thing that got me was why there is a tax for making a chartible contribution to a non-profit organization.

Axecution2708d ago


Its a glitch with PSN. The tax is automatically refunded back into your wallet. >.>

GodsHand2708d ago

@ Axecution

Thanks for the info, I guess I should my PSN wallet, I guess I can use that to rent a movie or something.

BlackTar1872708d ago

Protoype- It doesn't matter how much you donate its the fact you did. You should be proud of that not everyone has money to give to others and im sure if you donated 50000000 or 5 they would appreciate it all the same.

Good job.

bebojet2708d ago

First I donated $5 since that's all I can give at the time, now I will be donating $25 on PSN. I was actually planning on visiting Japan before this happened.

Umbrella Corp2708d ago (Edited 2708d ago )

I started a fundraiser in my school so far we got $200 dollars that will be donated to the Red Cross of Japan.

Pacman3212708d ago

I gave £5 through PSN, i would of gave more but i haven't got that much money at the moment.
Have to give credit to Sony though, good to see them supporting Japan through the PS3.

Bordel_19002708d ago

I gave £20 through PSN. I'm planning on donating again in april.

artsaber2708d ago (Edited 2708d ago )

If everyone just gives what little they can, it will help. Do not be ashamed of small donations... they add up and give massive amounts of relief to those in need.

I encourage everyone to give, even if just a little is all you can do.

@ARIJayden below - Thank you for your contribution, it means a lot to those in need, people you don't even know and you are willing to give. Don't pay attention to naysayers, I hope that you are blessed in return for your giving.

@Dno (way below) - you can donate on PSN by finding the "Aid Japan" button. It has several preset dollar amounts where you can choose how much you want to give. I think you can give up to $50 in one transaction.

Nice letter from Kojima, you all should read it. It pleases me to see so many give unselfishly. I am in good company today here on N4G.

Poor Japan the footage of the tsunami was horrific so much destruction, hope it doesn't take too long too rebuild it all.

killcycle2708d ago

They can rebuild the lands.. but not the people who died.

I Donated £20 Through PSN, am happy to see playstation giving people an easy way to donate for japan, i really hpe they recover very soon, we should be getting together the whole world to look out for each other cause natural disasters are only going to get worse, so instead of wars with each other we should be helping each other out to keep the human race survive though the harseness of natural disasters.
