It has been a little over two months since the tsunami hit Japan and caused unprecedented devastation, but lots of work still needs to be done, and celebs are trying to raise awareness.

According to the Unite for Japan website, which was created by Inception star Ken Watanabe, “hundreds of thousands are still living in shelters and many are reporting increased rates of fatigue, stress, and insomnia. In addition, a growing number of children are developing mumps, asthma, and pneumonia and other illnesses related to stress.”

Watanabe’s goal has always been to raise money for victims, as 28,000 have been killed, and provide moral support to those still standing.

To encourage survivors he has enlisted the help of A-list stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Katy Perry, Matt Damon, and Cameron Diaz to send messages like, “People all around the world love you” and “We love you, we are with you.”

Now, in the most recent video released, we see Ben Affleck, Johnny Depp, Ben Stiller, and more reminding us that there is still work to be done, as close to half a million are left homeless.

“Unite for Japan,” baseball star Hideki Matsui says.

“So that Japan knows we are supporting them from around the world,” says Jamie Lee Curtis.

And the video ends with, “Make a donation, spread the word to Unite for Japan.”

Watch the clip for yourself and pass along so you can help spread the word!
