I'm sure you don't need to be told any more about the absolute devastation that has befallen the north coast of Japan. Cheap Ass Gamer will be matching donations up to $10,000 for those who donate to GlobalGiving's Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund through our community fundraiser. Please donate through the link below or through the widgets seen around CAG.

So is Japan accepting money or something now? I thought they said they didn't want help, then again that news was from like three days ago.

What news have you been watching? (probably Fox News)

They've been asking for help like everyday, just not with the nuclear situation, but as of recently, they have actively been seeking help with their nuclear reactors now, since it is starting to turn grim.

But they have indeed been asking for help, but to be honest, who wouldn't in their situation?

My prayers go out to Japan. From what I'm hearing it seems like the workers in the nuclear reactor are being pulled out and it's been left up to hope now. Donating now.

Has the disaster impacted you directly Cheapy? I don't know how widespread it is but living there I can't imagine it hasn't impacted you in some significant way. I was worried for your family's safety when I heard about it. I hope you and yours are as safe as you can be.

I came here for this very reason. I read some of your twitter posts about reading the fine print for some charities. Glad to see you set this up.

As a freelance employee it's hard to tell when I'll be getting a check but that isn't going to stop me from contributing to help. This could of happened to my family. It'd could of been me wondering if they were okay, if they had food, water, or shelter, if help was on the way. Money is the least I can do. Just wish I could be there to help some how. Have hope Japan.

Don't worry. I'll be matching the grand total of donations in 2 weeks or so, or earlier if we hit the $10k before then.

Yo Cheapy,
For real, get the fock out of Japan. The government is lying! That reactor is in a meltdown. You want to be out of there now, not when everyone else realizes the shit is hitting the fan. Good luck and be safe.
