Announcing SIUniverse For Japan: Online Auction to Support Relief Efforts in Japan




Help the people of Japan by bidding on items donated by members of the SIUniverse family.
 
Two weeks ago, the world was stunned by the devastating earthquake and tsunami that ravaged northern Japan. Though the aftermath of the natural disaster and resulting nuclear crisis is no longer front page news, the people of northern Japan still need our help. This is why SIUniverse Media is announcing SIUniverse For Japan, an online auction to raise money for ongoing relief efforts in Japan. 


Through ebay Giving Works, 100% of the final sale of any item sold through SIUniverse For Japan will go toward GlobalGiving’s Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. Search for eBay seller ID “siuniverseforjapan” or follow SIUniverse on twitter and Facebook for regular updates on the auction.

Over the next several weeks, fans will be able to bid on everything from original artwork, action figures, t-shirts, DVDs, CDs, comics, books, and other unique items donated by some of the creative talent behind Secret Identities and know that all proceeds will go towards rebuilding the lives of the people affected by the disasters. The first item, a copy of Secret Identities plus a bookplate signed by Jeff Yang, Parry Shen, Keith Chow and Jerry Ma, will be up for bid beginning on Monday, March 28.
