On Friday, Mar 11, an earthquake measuring 8.9 on the Richter scale struck off the coast of Japan, bringing down towns and triggering a 30-foot tsunami in what is recorded as the worst earthquake in Japan’s history. While the official death toll currently stands at 1,700, more than 10,000 people are lost, and feared dead. Scores of people have been displaced, families split and homes flattened as raging waves washed over the coast and fires ravage some areas. Rescuers still hear the cries of victims buried under rubble.
Affected parts of Japan have come to a standstill with public transportation, electricity cables and telephone lines destroyed. Water supply has also been cut off, sparking major health concerns. Devastating aerial photos show ships, containers and even planes strewn like toys, and some towns are completely submerged underwater.

Contribute RM3 to our relief fund to help our friends in Japan, and we’ll match the amount in full (up to RM25,000*). Every Ringgit will be channelled to the Japanese Red Cross via the Malaysian Red Crescent Society.
Our thoughts are with the people in Japan and the victims of this disaster.
The Red Cross is an international organization which responses to world catastrophes by providing humanitarian aid and coordinating rescue missions. In light of the double disaster, Japan’s Red Cross has sent 62 response teams and about 400 medical staff into the field. The Malaysian Red Crescent is part of The Red Cross -- and a sister organization to Japan's Red Cross.
Note: Unlike our regular deals, you won’t enjoy any discount / redeem any experience when you "buy" this Groupon. The only experience you may receive is 100% good free karma.
* While Groupon has allocated RM25,000 to match your contribution, we will still be accepting donations even after the RM25,000 mark.
