Designs for Japan

Over the last week, we have been inspired by artists and designers pulling together to raise funds for Japan.  Handmade for Japan is a benefit auction that will start in March 24 and the preview of donations, featuring this  lovely piece by artist Lisa DeJohn, is absolutely stunning.

Local printers Pinball Press have also created these Help Japan Scout Books ($15+, proceeds to MercyCorps).

And then there is Widen Kennedy’s iconic Help Japan Poster ($25+).

If you are looking for a resource for sending funds directly, Bust Magazine has listed a number of relief organizations. And, when your heart is still heavy, the Portland Japanese Garden has created a Wish Arbor for people to visit, pray and reflect together about this immense tragedy.
