We’ve all heard about the devastation in Japan, and people are likely wondering how they can help. Our friends over at HearJapan have just announced a fundraiser that will be running all this week where 50% of all sales will be donated to the charitable group Japan Platform. This is an easy way to give, and while you may be asking yourself, “Why only 50%?,” HearJapan will actually be taking a loss on this and writing it off as their contribution to the relief efforts.

Check out the HearJapan catalog which features over 5,000 artists and 40,000+ songs, all with streamable clips. You can also learn more about Japan Platform here.

Hit the jump for the official press release from HearJapan.

Yokohama, Japan — March 14th, 2011 — As you likely already know, Japan was recently struck by a major earthquake, triggering tsunami, fires and massive disruption to vital services across the entire country.

For the next week, HearJapan will be donating 50% of all sales to Japan Platform, a relief organization that has been performing rescue operations in the affected areas since the day of the earthquake. Due to Japan Platform being on-site in Japan, HearJapan can get the donated money working immediately to help those effected.

HearJapan will not be making any profit from this. In fact HearJapan will be losing money, in effect adding to the donation itself. HearJapan is a small company, but we are committed to doing everything we can to help. We feel this is a great way to get others involved, make an instantly tangible difference and also give some great Japanese music in return.

(Note: Due to rolling blackouts, HearJapan may be down for a few hours a day.)
