Zynga the little company that has grown into a game company bigger than even EA, has joined the Internet’s efforts at donating to Japanese Tsunami relief.  You can now do donations through virtual good buying in all of Zynga’s games. I might now have a reason to play FrontierVille, FarmVille or CityVille aside from my younger sibling’s constant request for help with her farm.  100% of the virtual goods purchase prices will be donated to Tsunami relief.

Players who want to donate in the non-Ville game Words With Friends can use the Save the Children button inside the game. Players in all games within Facebook can also send funds using the Zbar, or the bar that sits on top of the game. Facebook will also be donating its traditional 30% cut on the Facebook Credits used to contribute to the relief.

Judging by a rare tweet by Zynga CEO Mark Pincus, Zynga ambitiously wants to raise 2 million through the efforts.
