As part of a week-long effort to raise money and awareness for the continuing situation in Japan, the St. Norbert College Colony of Kappa Sigma will be holding a fundraiser from April 1-8.

"Japandamonium" will consist of one DJ/donating station in front of the Ray Van Den Heuvel Family Campus Center playing the song "Friday" by Rebecca Black continuously so it can be heard all over campus. Every Kappa Sigma member will be carrying a container for mobile donating. With the goal being $2,500, the music volume will decrease as progress is made toward the goal. When the goal is reached, the music will stop. Cash, checks made out to the American Red Cross with "Japan Relief" written in the memo section, and (at the main station) student Custom Cash will be accepted.

The music will be played every weekday from 3 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., with the exception of Tuesday, April 5, where the music will be played from 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Along with Kappa Sigma's "Japandamonium," St. Norbert College's Beyond Borders club, Japan Club, and Peace and Justice Center will be hosting their own individual events with the same purpose and fiscal goal.
