April 16, 2016
On 14 April 2016, a magnitude 6.5 earthquake rocked Kumamoto region in Japan, followed two days later by a second, more powerful 7.3-magnitude quake. Interush would like to express deepest condolences and sympathy to those who were sacrificed as well as to those who suffered from this great disaster.
In a break from the usual iRush Help protocol, Interush has decided to advance 6,000,000 JPY in immediate emergency financial assistance due to the rapid escalation of this disaster. This is to avoid the unnecessary delay of emergency support during the progression of this fundraising campaign. Funds are being allocated directly to the areas of most urgent need via the Japan Red Cross, a nonprofit organization that supports disaster relief nationally and globally.
Affiliates worldwide are encouraged to contribute during this iRush Help campaign, continuing through May. Affiliate contributions reaching an aggregate 6 million JPY or more by 31 May 2016 (USA) will be fully matched by Interush, with no upper limit.
