On March 11, 2011, the country of Japan suffered a horrific, tragic event. A massive 9.1 earthquake struck off the coast of north-east Japan. This triggered a massive tsunami that hit the Pacific coastline of Japan. Many people lost their homes and livelihoods in this disaster. The most tragic effect was the loss of almost 15,000 lives.
In response to the disaster, International Wota joined many other organizations and fan communities in assisting relief efforts for the massive humanitarian crisis. We launched a charity auction and sold off various merchandise and goods from members of our community. In total, we raised $1,047! It was donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund using the eBay Giving Works program.
We would like to thank the buyers and everyone that helped promote the auction around. And, of course, we would like to thank the following bloggers that donated items:
