“Will be doing a donation of $1M NTD for the relief of the victims of the terrible train accident in Taiwan”, he said. He also went on to encourage others to donate to help those affected by the disaster, with links to Taiwan News, who had more information on how to donate.

The Huailien Rail disaster was a horrifying accident, claiming the lives of 50 people when a train smashed into a truck. It happened in Eastern Taiwan, near Taroko Gorge.
Even if you’re not based in Taiwan, the Taiwanese Ministry of Health and Welfare has provided information on how to wire transfer money over. The information is as follows:
Bank name: Mega International Commercial Bank CO., LTD.
Swift code: ICBCTWTP007
Account Number: 007-09-11868-0
Beneficiary’s name: 衛生福利部賑災專戶 (Ministry of Health and Welfare Donation A/C)
Razer and Min-Liang Tan have pushed for social causes outside of the Huailien Rail Disaster before, often promoting environmental action such as with the Kanagawa Wave Capsule line of shirts, which were made with recycled plastic.
