  • Apple Taking Donations via iTunes to Help Earthquake Victims in Japan


    Apple has begun taking donations through iTunes, to help the victims of the devastating 8.9 magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami that hit Japan on Friday. 100% of the donations will go directly to the American Red Cross and Apple is waiving its usual 30% fee. Apple is accepting donations through the iTunes store in various denominations ranging from $5-$200. Unfortunately, you can't use iTunes store credit to make donations.

    Apple has also posted a message on the Apple Store website in Japan that reads: ”To those who have been affected by the earthquake and tsunami, we send sympathies from our heart. In this deep sadness, we are praying for the victims and their families.”

    Apple has the largest credit card database of any retailer on the internet. By having all donations go through iTunes, it gives people a quick and easy way to donate money to the relief fund. Donations can also be made directly to the American Red Cross website, as well.



    Our hearts go out to the victims and families of this horrible tragedy.

      No this isn't humanitarian. This will benefit apple more than it ever would japan. It's a publicity stunt to try look like the good guys, nothing more.

      The best thing that online retailers or stores like apple can do is out a donation link up. You can't hate on apple, it's the easiest way to help out, and the fastest.
