Donate Directly Through PlayStation Network

Both the European and American wings of the PlayStation Blog have just announced that you can now donate directly to the British Red Cross and American Red Cross – Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund, respectively, through the PSN Store. In America, donations can be made in amounts of $2, $5, $10, $25, and $50. Europeans can donate in amounts of €2, €5, €10, and €20. Says Jack Tretton, President and CEO of SCEA:

Many gamers in particular feel a special bond with Japan, even if they’ve never traveled there personally. Its ingenuity and innovation have shaped our industry, and its culture and style have brought a sense of community across the world.

Please join us now in helping the Japanese people during this great time of need. Together we can have a significant impact on the relief process.

To donate, head to the “Aid Japan” area in the New Releases section of the PlayStation Store. You’ll even get a free PS3 theme!

    Well said. It’s true we gamers feel close to Japan, especially those of us who grew up on Nintendo, just to state the first thing that popped into my head. I now really wish I had a PS3, just to be able to be a part of this.
