Contribute to the Relief Effort in Japan Via the PSN, Get a Cool Theme

By Chad Awkerman

March 19, 2011

Sony has opened up a direct link to donate directly to disaster relief in Japan by way of the PlayStation Network. If you log onto the PSN and go to the New Releases area, you’ll find an icon there that says “Aid Japan”. You can then choose to donate $2, $5, $10, $25 or $50 directly from your PlayStation Wallet to the Red Cross, and all the proceeds go directly to aid in relief efforts in Japan.

On top of that, if you donate you’ll be able to download the cool PS3 theme seen above, so it’s a little extra incentive to drop off a few bucks to help. But, you all wouldn’t need any extra incentive besides knowing you’re helping in disaster recovery, right? For more ways to help out, check out my post on the subject, which I will update soon with all the new ways that have opened up since I wrote it.
