Helping Japan in Disaster Relief Efforts

On March 11, 2011, Japan was hit with one of the worst earthquakes of its history, a magnitude 8.9, which caused damage of catastrophic proportions in the northeastern area of the country.

The epicenter of the earthquake was in Sendai. It was followed by several aftershocks and a major tsunami which wiped out everything in its path.

This has caused incalculable devastation to the people of Japan who are still reeling from the aftermath. Many countries and organizations are working towards helping the Japanese through this crisis and help minimize the pain.

The World Soccer Shop has launched a new Japan United T-Shirt in support of the recent events and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these T-Shirts will support Red Cross disaster relief efforts in Japan.
