Help Japan

Alicia Bock

Everywhere I turn, I'm seeing more and more artists responding to the disaster in Japan. It's incredibly heartwarming amidst such tragedy. My inbox is filling up with individuals sending out their info, and I would like to do a post here. If you are doing something similar and wish to add yourself to this list, please do so by leaving a comment here in the comments section. Here is what I am aware of so far:

Alicia Bock is giving proceeds from the photographs in this collection to the Red Cross for relief efforts in Japan.

Pinecone Camp is offering 50% off for the month of March on all sales in her etsy shop to the Red Cross.

scottelbot is auctioning a print of this image to help.

Pikaland will be giving 100% of their net profit from the sale of Tokyo-based artist Mogu Takahashi’s Chotto Omoshiroi poster to the International Federation of Red Cross & Red Crescent Society.

20x200 is offering all the proceeds from the print, Shinjukuku 6:43 by by Joseph O. Holmes and Imperial Palace Gardens with Wall, Tokyo, by Emily Shur, benefit Japan Society's Earthquake Relief Fund.

Mike Perry - Buy from his online store and 100% of the money raised will go to help Japan This will go until the end of the month. via Pikaland

The Working Proof and Susan Schwake has teamed up to produce a print where proceeds will go to Médecins Sans Frontières. via Pikaland

Tinyshowcase is raising money via The Rising Sun — a print by by Jesse LeDoux via Pikaland

The students at a local University here (UBC), have created a few ways to raise money. One I particularily love is they are selling paper origami cranes to raise funds. I love the legend that promises anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. Lets hope this legend helps those in need now. Click here for more information on all the ways to help (a comprehensive list).

Check out Handmade for Japan who's mission is to raise money through an online auction on March 24-27 for relief efforts.

Hello Sandwich is selling the PDF of her Hello Sandwich Gift Wrapping for $5 and all money raised will go to the Red Cross to support survivors and rebuild Japan. Click here for info, here to view the PDF and here to buy (it's super cute)!. You can also donate through her friends' raffles here and here.

Write for Tohoku (Call for submissions)

Ez from Wren and Chickadee (Creature Comforts) is currently donating 100% of their profits to help the relief efforts in Japan. Click here for more info.

Samantha Hahn has made a watercolor cherry blossom print to benefit Doctors Without Borders who are currently helping people in need during this crisis in Japan. Click here to see.

HEARTS + HANDS is a community effort organized by Lynn Russell of Satsuma Press. In 48 hours, fifty independent artists and studios have agreed to donate prizes for the raffle – and that list is still growing. Raffle tickets are for sale now at www.heartsandhandsforjapan.blogspot.com for $10 each.  
100% of the proceeds from the HEARTS + HANDS raffle will be donated to relief efforts in Japan in the aftermath of the March 11th earthquake and tsunami.



Please feel free to add your sale/auction, etc for Japan here in the comments for others to read. Thank you.

Thank you Jan, and thank you to all the artists!

I have pulled a special image from my archives to list in my Etsy shop of a beautiful cherry tree in full bloom. It reminds me of the hope and fragility of life, and of course, it reminds me of the beautiful people of Japan.

http://www.etsy.com/listing/70232218/in-full-bloom-a-photograph-dedicated-to

100% of profits from this image will be donated to Save the Children and an organization local to me, the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California (JCCCNC). The JCCCNC is also donating 100% of funds raised to disaster relief.

Brie said...

Visit my shop at store.fallcreekfibers.com for yarns and teas and 45% of every sale in March is going to earthquake relief.

And then my honey and I are matching the donation to send to our home town in Santa Cruz, CA to help with cleaning up the spills from the tsunami effect.

Make us broke!

Mlle Paradis said...

Wonderful efforts all. I'm someone who believes we have to go beyond financial donations. More money was raised for Haiti relief than for any disaster dating back to 9/11 and little has changed there in over a year.

I am encouraging everyone possible from politicians, community leaders, Japanese consuls, Avaaz, MoveOn.org to Oprah to push for more hands on assistance specifically airlifts of food, generators and fuel, specialized medical supplies AND helping hands, even though some governments are now evacuating their search and rescue teams because of radiation fears.

my site http://mlleparadis.blogspot.com has references and links to news reports and organizations posted over the last few days. i just feel that the scale of the catastrophe is too big, and that natural Japanese reserve is working against the Japanese people. Time is being lost, and the troubles multiply and compound in the meantime. They threaten to become insurmountable for the Japanese government and unspeakably tragic.

It only takes a few quick emails, I'm pleading for the world community to speak up and ask your leaders to help NOW!

Elizabeth said...

Newhouseproject and littlecitybiglove are making embroidered cranes on Etsy, with 100% of the proceeds going to support relief efforts in Japan.

To assist with the Japan earthquake and tsunami relief efforts, the Burbank, CA-based vintage-inspired clothing and accessories boutique is donating 20% of sales from their umbrella collection to the American Red Cross from March 23rd-April 6th. Hopefully, it will make a small difference in the lives of people thousands of miles away...and allow those stateside to stay dry at the same time.
