As I'm sure you all know, Japan was recently hit with an earthquake and a tsunami destroying towns and people's homes. Now they facing trouble with unstable nuclear reactors. Being half Japanese this tragedy has really hit me hard and it hurts to see so much pain going on in my country. Thankfully my relatives do not live in the critical area, they live close Kyoto and would only have felt some earthquake tremors.
To help those in need I'll be donating part of my sales I make tomorrow at the William st market to the cause. I'll be donating to the Red Cross and to the Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support. Many people forget about all the animals that have to survive through natural disasters.
Another blogger/illustrator/crafter Rag Pets is running a raffle to win one of her sweet plush cats. Tickets are only US$5 each and you can buy as many tickets as you like. She will draw the winner on Monday. She will be donating all the money to the Japan earthquake animal rescue and support organisation.
Please consider donating to the cause, even if it is just a few dollars, it all adds up. Below are links to organisations you can donate to.
