Today marks the premiere of “Gamers ♥ Japan,” a special video that was created by the videogame community from all over the world to help raise donations for Red Cross relief efforts for Japan.
The show contains interviews with top game makers and journalists and will air in Canada today, followed by a premiere in the US tomorrow. It will be shown both on TV (check the website for details) as well as online.
Definitely check it out, and get in on the action and help support a country who has impacted our favorite hobby in the biggest way.
I think this is a really cool way to make a personal connection with an entire country that is going through a huge disaster, and to be able to feel even better about giving when it’s funneled and fueled through the mutual passion that is videogames.
