Charitable auctions add to Japan relief

The games industry continues to press forward with relief efforts for Japan after its earthquake and tsunami. A week ago we outlined a variety of ways to help Japan, but companies and individuals keep finding new charitable donations. Now seems like an apt time to revisit some of the successes of last week, and detail the new goings-on and ways that you can contribute to Japan's disaster relief.

Most of these listings are from the Play for Japan movement, which will list new auctions and fundraising efforts as they become available.

PopCap announced that its iPhone sale raised $200,000 for disaster relief. The autographed Nintendo DS auction closed at $4,050. MAGfest caught 200 viewers during its live concert. More results are bound to come in as the companies from last week close their auctions and funding drives.

        Agreed.
        I also think they'd make more money on stuff like the Dreamcast bag/hoodie if they manufactured several. I know I'd buy them for sure.

      As a Japanese living Fukushima, I'd like to thank the people abroad for all the helping hands.
      I won't forget your kindness.
      I hope to be able to repay you someday.
