Hawaii’s statewide campaign to raise funds for the survivors of the Japan earthquake and tsunamis has reached $6 million in donations.

Organizers of the Aloha for Japan campaign say that two months after the March 11 disasters, the Hawaii chapter of the American Red Cross and the Japan-America Society of Hawaii collected about $3 million each.

More donation collection drives, concerts and other events are scheduled throughout the coming months.

Information about the campaign and how to make online donations can be found at
