Doctors Without Borders has already arrived in Japan, working to provide medical assistance in addition to supplying evacuation centers with basic supplies such as blankets, food, and water.
You may remember that Doctors Without Borders was one of the organizations that Google’s Chrome for a Cause worked with, and that Fyzzed held a contest for. So both we and large corporations really trust that this nonprofit group can make an impact in relieving some of the devastation caused by the earthquake and tsunami.
Although the tsunami’s effects in Japan are devastating, as the third most wealthy nation in the world (and one of the most efficient and organized countries) Japan has not yet requested any outside aid. If the Doctors Without Borders finds it more suitable to use the money towards other areas (such as Afghanistan (103rd in country wealth ranking, out of 181), Libya (63rd), and other areas of Africa) Fyzzed is still happy to stand by our donation.
(We will be making our donation to UNICEF within the next week)
As part of our project Fyzzed for UNICEF, we announced that we would be donating 100% of our net proceeds during a certain time frame to UNICEF.
We’re happy to announce that we will be donating $512.87 to this organization that helps underprivileged children around the world.
We would like to thank all of you, with all your support we were able to make this donation. Because of this project’s success, we hope to continue similar charity projects in the future.
In fact, we’re starting another one right now! We’re sure you’ve all heard of the devastation in Japan caused by the colossal earthquake and tsunami. Fyzzed will be making a donation of $165 ($87+$78 since 7 and 8 are lucky numbers in Japanese culture) to disaster relief.
We also encourage everyone to help out! It’s as easy as texting REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation!
