Help with Tsunami Relief on PSN

Besides supplies being donated by Sony to help with the relief effort, they have also made it possible for us to donate through the PlayStation Network and help those in need as well. To go about doing this, you will need to go into the new release section of the PlayStation Store and look for “Aid Japan”.

You will, then, be able to donate $2, $5, $10, $25 and $50 from your wallet, which will also net you a free theme (pictured above). Even if you didn’t get anything out of it, it is still important that we help those in need; despite racial, economical, religious, and social status. All funds from donations will go to American Red Cross – Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund. Every little bit will help!

    This is a great idea. Would be awesome if Sony had this sort of aid donation as a regular feature. Maybe a different cause each month. BTW, out of curiosity, does anyone know whether it’s a dynamic or static theme? My wife and I already donated to the Red Cross a few days ago, but I’d be willing to send a bit more money for a dynamic theme.

    not sure if it is or not; couldn’t find an answer on that. Seeing as my PS3 is still out of commission, I can’t check to make sure

    Ok, I’ll download it. Already gave to the Red Cross but Japan needs all our help.

    love the idea wish you could just donate what ever is in your wallet tho. I would say you would get a lot more donations that way with everyone left over change

    Wish I had access to the PSStore, then I could help.

    Not a big problem since I’m already helping out.

    They didn’t even really need to give me a theme – they got my $10 donation, and I hit up another $10 with Bungie’s online store (Quake Relief Wristbands).
