Donate to Help Victims of Nepal’s Devastating Earthquake

In the last few weeks, we’ve watched the devastating effects of major earthquakes that have struck Nepal, affecting so many lives and destroying countless homes across the country. We know the road to recovery will be a long one, and our hearts are with the Nepalese communities affected by this unimaginable tragedy.

During this time of need, we’re making it easy for PlayStation fans to donate to relief efforts through PlayStation Network. Simply go to PlayStation Store where you can make your donations in the following increments: $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100. For your generous contribution, you’ll receive a special theme inspired by Nepal for PS4 or PS3.

100 percent of your contributions will go directly to both the American Red Cross and Save the Children earthquake relief efforts in Nepal. This will help these important organizations provide much needed aid in Nepal, such as providing emergency supplies, deploying emergency personnel and supporting displaced families.

We want to thank all of you for the times you’ve supported communities in need. Together we can once again make an impact by aiding the ongoing recovery efforts in Nepal.

  • I had read about this on another site and just purchased it. Thanks for letting me help.

  • Beautiful themes. Thanks for giving the PS community a chance to make a difference and help the people effected by this tragedy.

  • I will gladly donate for this!

  • Normally wouldn’t be able to donate.
    So glad this is with PSN Points!
    In for 1 donation and 1 beautiful theme.
    (Normally wouldn’t get paid themes)

  • I just want to know how much sony is donating.more than 20 million ps4s sold and i bet they wont donate $100.

    You mean the company itself or from this?

  • Awesome! Can’t wait to donate when I get home!

    Also, don’t forget to check out the fundraiser at Bungie.net!

    Donated

  • Awesome! Was just going to ask for something similar in nature to Bungies donating efforts via PlayStation Gear. I had donated through them and will also contribute on PSN. Thanks for providing an avenue.

  • I know it’s for a good cause but man, the earthquake was a month ago now, you’ve taken your sweet time jumping on the bandwagon Sony. Donated.

  • Man Sound Shape Ultimate Bundle is $4. And I been wanting that game since day one. I have exactly $4.69 in my PSN wallet. But $2 is going to this. I guess I’ll wait for a other sale when Sound Shapes is on sale.

  • This is for a good cause, and thank you Sony for doing this. It’s always nice to help others. Donated

    Ajudei, peguei no PS4, se bem que poderia ser “cross-buy” e receber um tema para PS3 também!! rsrs Mas fico feliz em ajudar!!! Espero que toda essa arrecadação ajude bastante esse povo que precisa!!!

  • Great, I’ll join in.

  • How long is this going on? I would like to add some paypal money to my PSN account from eBay but it might be a while before the money goes in from the sell.

  • Donated!

  • Good on you sony, I love what you guys are trying to do. It’s a shame you can’t donate this way if you live outside of the US though. I donated through Bungie/Destiny instead but would have happily thrown money at this too.

  • Hi! Will it be available in other countries as well? I would like to add my donation. Thanks!

  • Great! Lets help everyone.

  • How do I donate in Europe?

  • PuppetShoJustice

    @6 He means the company putting its own money up rather than donated money. And before you say there isn’t any difference, there is. Donating through a company like this is kind of backhanded use of the donating party’s money since Sony will get a tax write-off based on our money that they donate in their name.

    If you don’t mind Sony making a bit of profit off of your Nepal donations though then by all means. The theme is actually kind of a cool incentive.

  • Awesome idea! Happy to see this and also to hear about Ubisoft’s helping with the relief of Nepal as well. Glad to help.

  • @5, Xoombie: Sigh, did you know Sony has investments in different sectors? :/ Sony still produces tech beyond consoles. Unfortunately, there are financial loses across the board. They’ve more or less left the television & PC industry & their smartphones & cameras may be next. So, there’s alot of downsizing going on…

    It’s nice Sony officially recognizes such a tragic event & through PS consoles, they’ve created a great way to send monetary aid to Nepal.

    I’m already a happy owner of their Japanese theme.

  • This was a really good idea, these people really need all the help they can get! Guys keep praying for them too!

  • Thank you for giving more people an easy opportunity to help! My question though, when and will we be able to see the results? As in, how much money raised, how was it used? If I could afford to I would just fly to Nepal myself and lend a hand to know I was ACTUALLY helping.

  • Purchased a ps4 theme thanks for allowing us to help

  • Uncle_Ruckus1995

    its a good thing and all, but why does sony need our help when its a multi Million dollar business. if they cared as much as they say they do wouldn’t they have just gave the money themselves

  • Just bought a 100$ psn card and was going to get game but donated it to these guys they need it more

  • Xx-MooDy-KSA-xX_

    hi

  • Did it a few hours ago! Thanks for an easy way to donate!

  • This is like the Japanese tsunami a few year ago. They had 2 themes for the ps3 that I donated and got… I treasured those themes just as I will with this one.

    Thanks PS for giving us the opportunity to help out folks in this horrible situation.

    Making it easy + the theme is just a plus to helping people.

  • How do I donate? I went to the store and it wasn’t there?

  • I will gladly donate for this! This theme is so beautiful and I am too happy for help.

  • Why I can’t donate using United Arab Emirates PS Store?
