Actor Edward Norton is using the power of his Crowdrise website to help relief efforts in tsunami-hit Japan. The "American History X" star founded the site in 2010 to pull together fans and other celebrities to co-ordinate fund-raising efforts for a range of charities.

Organizers have now turned their attentions to aid efforts in the Far East following Friday's, March 11, devastating double blow of a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and a massive tidal wave in Japan. A statement posted on the website's homepage reads, "Now is the time to Crowdrise."

"The Japanese are in the middle of a major disaster. Please donate to the projects below or start your own fundraiser. Please just get involved and get all your friends involved. This is why we Crowdrise."

More than 10,000 people are feared to have died after the quake triggered a huge tsunami that slammed into Japan's east coast.
