A Sporting Way To Help Japan

Illustration for article titled A Sporting Way To Help Japan

If you're going to donate to a charity so you can help out the people and organisations in Japan currently dealing with the effects of the earthquake and tsunami, you may as well get a great game out of it.


Until March 18, all revenues raised from the sale of Sega's Football Manager Handheld 2011 on the App Store will go to charities engaged in disaster relief along Japan's coast.

That's not "10% of revenues", or "a select amount", it's all money made. So you're donating to charity and getting one of the best games on the App Store at the same time. That's a win win if ever we've seen one.


If you've never played it, it takes all the best bits of the desktop marriage-destroying football management sim and lets you put them in your pocket. You can grab it here.

More games (not just app store games) should do this. Though, not necessarily all revenue (that's quite noble, though).

It'd be a nice incentive to buy a game if I knew some of the money would go to a good cause like this.
