LinkShare Japan Launches “Tohoku Pacific
Offshore Earthquake” Relief Fund Project in
cooperation with advertisers and consumers

March 16, 2011, Tokyo -- We would like to extend our heartfelt sympathy and sincere condolences to all victims and families of the Tohoku Pacific Offshore Earthquake. LinkShare Japan K.K (“LinkShare Japan,” Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, CEO and Co-President: Tsukasa Kobayashi, Director, Co-President: Keigo Tsuda) today launched the “LinkShare Japan ‘Tohoku Pacific Offshore Earthquake’ Relief Fund Project” (http://www.linkshare.ne.jp/contribution/) to aid those affected by the Tohoku Pacific Offshore Earthquake that devastated the region on March 11th.

LinkShare Japan has set up a dedicated site for this project, and has posted affiliate sponsor banners on the website for publishers to place on their sites. When users make purchases or sign up by clicking through these sponsor banners, the entire sum of the affiliate commission* paid to LinkShare Japan will be donated to the relief fund. In addition, the total sum of all LinkShare fees incurred during the purchase or sign-up will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society. By making purchases or signing up with project sponsors through the project website, users will be able to easily make contributions to the relief fund by doing the online shopping they normally do, without any added cost.

*Note: The affiliate commission rates or amounts generated through user purchases or sign-ups vary among the respective EC site advertisers.

Thank you once again. Please accept our sincere appreciation for your kindness and generosity.
