The Murdoch-Japan Relief Group fundraising drive is being held outside the library from 11am on Friday March 18.
Dr James Boyd, Murdoch University Academic Advisor for Japanese exchange students, and Dr Takeshi Moriyama, Murdoch University Japanese lecturer, are leading the group.
Dr Takeshi said he is sure Murdoch staff and students will dig deep to help those victims of the disaster.
“Murdoch University has strong ties, academically and socially, with Japan and I know that the massive earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan last Friday, and the suffering of the Japanese people, will have shocked all staff and students,” he said.
“All those donating to the appeal will receive a ‘paper-crane ribbon’ to be worn in recognition of their generosity. In Japan the ‘paper-crane’ symbolizes peace and safety.”
All staff, students and visitors are invited to donate.
