As you have already heard on the news, there was a massive earthquake and tsunami hit in the north of Japan; killed over 5,000 people and 10,000 are still missing.
Survivors are fighting for their lives without food, water, or blankets in freezing snowing nights. Some lost their battles and passed away in the evaculation camp due to the rough condidions there. Still, radiation leaks and anticipated upcoming earthquakes still haunt them.
I have just begun donation drive campaign at my online vintage clothing shop; www.etsy.com/shop.lamodedekika. 50% of your purchased price will be donated to Japan Relief Fund at American Red Cross (http://www.americanredcross.org/) on behalf of your kindness and honor to support victims and survivors of the disaster in Japan.
I will donate to the organization through online after your purchase, and I will send you a copy of receipt of the donation from the Red Cross as a proof.
Should you be interested in joining the donation, please come see at www.etsy.com/shop/lamodedekika.
