Support Japan! It’s Good For Japan and For Your Heart

by Leila on April 13, 2011

On March 11th 2011 a 9.0 magnitude earthquake struck off the east coast of Japan resulting in triggering a 33 foot Tsunami that devastated coastal areas. Hundreds of aftershocks, unstable radioactivity and a high death toll of almost 13,000 people as a result to this disaster. This is something you think you would only see in movies.

I have family in Tokyo who are safe but still going through a hard time just as everyone else is in Japan. It is hard to know what they are going through but I’m inspired by the strength and integrity shown right now. I truly cannot imagine how scary it must have felt to experience the earthquake and tsunami. I also cannot imagine how our country would do during a time like that.

Right now I am helping run a fundraiser at my daughters school called “Cranes for a Cause” and we are selling Origami Grams to benefit Japan. We are selling Origami cranes and various other origami that was made by ourselves, family and friends. All the proceeds are going to a Japan Relief fund. I’m going to be adding the cranes and various other origami to my online store. All proceeds will go directly to the Japan Relief fund.

In addition I am going to donate all the profits from the sales for my Don’t Speak Whinese t-shirts to the Japan Relief fund. I will run this for the next week or until I run out of inventory! So, while supporting my website, wearing a kick ass shirt you will also be supporting a great cause.

And because I am really proud of my daughter for making this decision she asked for donations for Japan instead of gifts this year for her birthday. She raised just over $200. I had to throw in that proud Mommy moment!

I think no one can forget March 11th 2011 a 9.0 magnitude earthquake on Japan. It was such a horrible day for Japan. It is true that to support Japan is good for them and our heart also.
