SEGA Sammy Holdings donates 200 million yen in wake of Japanese disasters


The Northeastern coast of Japan has been devastated within the past few days due to the earthquakes, tsunamis and now everything from uncontrollable fires to radiation leaking with death tolls being estimated at over 15,000 people. This is the worst disaster Japan has seen since World War II.

Among the large companies that have shown their support, SEGA Sammy Holdings has donated 200 million yen, which is roughly 2,500,000 USD. SEGA has also announced that they will be donating all of the forthcoming money they will make on the Football Manager and Sonic the Hedgehog franchises (two of their biggest IPs) sold on mobile platforms for the next week.

If you would like to help in any way, please contact your local Red Cross for more information.
