A week after an earthquake and tsunami hit Japan, plenty of companies have stepped up to help those affected. In addition to the efforts we’ve already reported, here are a few more companies who are joining in.
LivingSocial, the daily deals site based here in Washington, unveiled a deal Thursday night that has raised over $1.7 million for Red Cross efforts in Japan. Donate $5, and Living Social will match it. With a day left in the deal, members have donated over $870,000.
Groupon has raised at least ¥109,556,720 ( over $1,351,000) in a worldwide fundraising effort. Donations made through its U.S. site go to the International Medical Corps’ efforts in Japan.
PopCap Games, which makes titles such as Bejeweled and Plants vs. Zombies, announced that it will discount all of its game prices and donate all revenue to Japan this weekend. iPhone and iPod Touch games will be 99 cents; iPad games will be $1.99. The sale starts Saturday at 12:01 a.m. PDT and ends at midnight on March 20. In its press release, PopCap Games said that it recently opened an office in Tokyo. Its employees were not injured in the disaster, the company said.
Mac Games Store is offering a bundle of 15 games — valued at over $200 — for $19.95 and giving all the proceeds to Japan. (h/t The Loop)
