This is a fundraiser to raise money for worthy causes. Here's some more information about it:
After the events of the 2011 Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami, we want to help out and give back to the Japanese people. We hope the anime community can band together and help the Japanese in their time of need. We will be holding a 24 hour podcasting marathon to raise money for the victims of Japan on March 19th through 20th. To participate and/or learn more, go to http://helpjapan.onepiecepodcast.com This is a charity hosted by GlobalGiving.
