Some illustrator has created a cute mascot, Zunko Tohoku to serve as a virtual character to support the people in Tohoku region after the earthquake. The images are copyright free so spread the love around!
They also created a moe version of her as a widget for smartphones and I tried it on my Android. Not sure about the iPhone and oh, it’s in Japanese but it’s a very simple RPG-ish widget. You train her archery skills, feed her with mochi and watch her gobble up the food. The app can be found in the Marketplace.
