Japan Earthquake: 7 High-Tech Ways to Help
Apple, LivingSocial, Zynga Use Social Media, Tech to Support Relief Efforts



Social Gaming

If you're a diehard FarmVille fan, you can support children affected by the earthquake just by playing your favorite game.

Zynga, the company behind the wildly popular Facebook game, announced Saturday that it was partnering with Save the Children to support earthquake and tsunami relief efforts.

In eight of the company's most popular games -- Cafe World, CityVille, FrontierVille, FarmVille, YoVille, Zynga Poker, Words With Friends and zBar -- players will have the opportunity to donate.

In FarmVille, for example, players can purchase a limited edition daikon radish crop. In Cafe World, players can buy Japanese-inspired decorations for their cafe. In each game, 100 percent of the purchase price goes to Save the Children's Japan's Earthquake and Tsunami Children Emergency Fund.

Zynga said that in just the first 36 hours since the initiative's launch, its gamers raised $1 million for relief efforts.

No... I've never heard of most of that you've listed, period.
(I lead a very sheltered life, I guess...)

GOOD! for them - ALL of them! That's wonderful!
