An anonymous donor has given a tsunami affected area of japan a quarter of a million dollars worth of gold.

TOKYO (AFP) - A Japanese city devastated by the 2011 tsunami has received anonymous gifts of gold worth more than $250,000 in a phenomenon dubbed a "goodwill gold rush" ahead of the second anniversary of the disaster.

Im not sure how far this money / gold can go to help but atleast someone is trying .

"Just looking at 24k gold can encourage people as it has a presence. It's great to know we haven't been forgotten," Sunow said, adding he had not yet decided how to use the gift. Japanese media said a non-profit group in Ishinomaki that has been supporting its revival had also received two kilograms of gold bullion and at least one more group got more than one kilogram.

Here in the USA, gold crashed on Friday. Down -$24.30 and-$.78 a gram.

I wonder if it has anything to do with it.
