Hey everyone,

Today is March 11, and the 3rd anniversary of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami that happened 3 years ago.

After the devastating impact of the 2011 Great Eastern Japan earthquake, a global effort to bring aid and assistance was initiated to help the people of the Tohoku region reconstruct their lives. But sadly, many of the most vulnerable are still in great need of help -- especially the children, many of whom have been emotionally and psychologically traumatized by the tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disaster.

In remembrance and to raise awareness of the still-ongoing efforts to help rebuild and support the residents that were affected by this tragedy, Crunchyroll is once again working with Zapuni LLC to help spread awareness and encourage donations.


This year, Zapuni's charity of choice is El Sistema, a visionary global movement that transforms the lives of children through music. El Sistema Japan has been working with the children and the community of Soma city, Fukushima for the past 2 years, and they need your support.


Zapuni collaborated with studio dwarf, the studio behind Domo-kun TV series, to create a beautiful and moving video set to Sade's Grammy-nominated song, "By Your Side."

We encourage anyone who can to please donate to the cause either through the Zapuni website at zapuni.com or, if you are in the US, you can donate $10 by simply texting “give 14117” to 80088. Donations are used to help El Sistema's efforts to provide children with instruments and a musical education.

Everyone at Crunchyroll and Zapuni greatly appreciates everyone's help and support. Thank you.

Is it possible to donate using PayPal?

*EDIT

Also, when will the donation end? If I'm going to donate I won't be donating anything before the 28th.

I hope help doesn't stop arriving to them.
Ganbare! Tatakai!

I feel like making something too... even if it's a 30 sec animation.
