Valve bags nearly half a million for Japan

Help Japan and look cool at the same time

Nearly 2 weeks ago the figure was $300,000 but Valve shared the good news that a total of $430,543.65 has now been raised as part of their Japanese disaster relief fund.

People the world over bought Team Fortress 2 hats to support the relief efforts in Japan after the recent earthquake. Valve thanked everyone who took part in a short post over on the official TF2 website.

Nice work, everyone! We’re excited to share that, thanks to the generosity of the TF community, in two short weeks we managed to collect $430,543.65 for the Japanese disaster relief fund. It’s been inspiring to watch gamers around the world come together for such a worthy cause.
