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!
