Help Japan

(Image source: Japan will blossom again)

As you may have noticed I am rather smitten with Japan, so it really does break my heart to see what has happened and I send my thoughts, prayers and condolences to the people affected by this disaster.

For those who wish to help:

You can make a donation to the Japan and Pacific Disaster Appeal with Australia Red Cross. 'The funds raised through this appeal will be used to support communities affected by the earthquake in Japan and the resultant tsunami that reached numerous countries around the Pacific Rim and within the Pacific Ocean.'

Readers from the USA may like to visit the American Red Cross

Or you could purchase one of Hilda Grahnat's beautiful prints or postcards sets here. All proceeds go direclty to Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief through the Japan Red Cross Society.

You could also visit  here and purchase a beautiful set of postcards designed by Catkin and Teasel. 100% of the proceeds go to the Australian Red Cross, who are directly aiding the Japan Red Cross Society.

And the lovely Hello Sandwich is selling her Hello Sandwich Gift Wrapping Zine (highly recommended!) for $5.00 as an instant download PDF file. All of the money raised will be donated to the Red Cross.

And lately, the adorable online shop Genki is donating all profits for this week to the relief effort in Japan.

Sending of lots of love and positive thoughts from Australia to my beloved Japan! xxx

Happy Tabako

Even the cigarette butts are happy in Tokyo.

Please note, I am by no means encouraging anyone to smoke!
