Help Japan through Swag Bucks!

As most of you have heard by now, on March 11, 2011 Japan was hit with a 9.0 magnitude earthquake, followed by a tsunami. The result of these catastrophic events have left the people of Japan in a state of emergency. Thousands of people are left homeless and thousands are still missing.

Many of you have been looking for ways to help out, whether it may be through monetary gifts or donating clothing and food. For those of you that may not have money to spare, there is still a way to help and that is through donating Swag Bucks. is a search and win website in which you win Swag Bucks by searching, watching videos, completing special offers and special swag codes. It is completely free to sign up and very easy to use!

Now you may be asking, what exactly are Swag Bucks? You can exchange your Swag Bucks for numerous prizes and sweepstakes (known as Swagstakes). These prizes include Amazon gift cards (the most popular and my favorite as well), PayPal money, iPods, video games and more.

Here is how you can help Japan through Swag Bucks. For the past few weeks, Swag Buck users have been able to donate their Swag Bucks, which are being converted into real money that is donating directly to All Hands Volunteers, a non-profit organization that assists in disaster relief worldwide.
