As 2011 Comes to a Close…

Though the initial momentum cooled off some time ago (and due to complications in Japan regarding distribution partners for the album), those of us who coordinated Play For Japan’s campaign would like to thank everyone who participated, purchased, bid, cheered-on, Retweeted, Reposted, Shared, commented, or just generally showed some kind of support for this massive effort.

Thanks to your help and assistance, the Play For Japan campaign raised over $129,000 in auctions alone to go to charities that assisted in disaster relief.

The nation of Japan is still recovering in many regards, and some of the issues will linger long after our efforts have been utilized to the fullest. But when disaster struck, you were there to help. We couldn’t have done this without you.

Special thanks goes to:
