Zynga has partnered with Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake Tsunami Emergency Fund to enable its users to donate money through the purchase of virtual goods in FarmVille, YoVille, Zynga Poker, Words With Friends, Cafe World, CityVille, FrontierVille and zBar. 100% of the proceeds from the purchase of sweet potatoes in CityVille, radishes in FarmVille or kobe cows in FrontierVille will go towards Save the Children’s efforts.

The Red Cross has also launched a campaign on Causes. Login to Facebook and donate anywhere from $10 to $500 to help Tsunami victims and their families.
