This is a resource page on ways you can help support the Japan earthquake relief effort. We hope that you will let your friends know about it as well. Together, we can make a difference.
Made with Japan has been holding a charity t-shirt campaign from this page to help aid in the relief efforts of the earthquake. The $425.49 raised through this campaign was donated to the American Red Cross. We are ending this campaign and thank those of you who donated through us or directly to a charitable organization.
However, we are now working hard to be a part of something greater because we would like to make contributions in the largest ways possible and extend help for the long-term recovery. We are calling the help of artists, fashion designers, crafts people all around the world to participate in the online charity auction initiative, “Art Drive” Japan. I wish that you and your friends will join us. http://www.artdrivejapan.madewithjapan.com
Hi everybody. As most of you may know already, the devastating effects of the largest recorded earthquake in recent history of Japan, continues to injure and take the lives of many. There is no doubt that aid is needed right now during the aftermath.
As a way to help, 100% of profits from all sales of Made with Japan hand-printed t-shirts will be contributed to organizations directly involved in the earthquake and tsunami relief effort. I hope that our support will make a difference, as well as raise more awareness that everybody’s contributions even in the smallest amount will make a huge difference collectively. Remember, a million people contributing a mere $1 becomes a million dollars, $2 becomes $2 million.
To make this as simple as possible for you, the t-shirts are priced at $35 including shipping and taxes. The actual shipping costs will vary and we will subtract that amount as well as other costs from the donation . If you wish to make additional contributions, you may do so by clicking the “Additional Donations” button.
All payments are securely processed through PayPal. All major credit cards acccepted.
However please remember, the people in need will benefit more if you donate DIRECTLY to reputable organizations. It’s faster that way, and the money won’t get wasted in costs, transaction fees, and shipping. In all honesty, we urge you to do this rather than donate through Made with Japan. Please comment below to share yours thoughts and what you’ve done to help.
UPDATE: PLEASE BEWARE OF FAKE CHARITIES AND SCAMS ON THE INTERNET
It’s sad but true, there are lurking con artists that will try to capitalize on the goodwill of sincere people like you who are looking to help. The FBI has issued a scam warning for Japanese disaster.
With that said, we encourage that you make donations only to reputable organizations that we know the money will be used for the proposed purpose. If you wish to donate directly, below is a list of trusted relief organizations.
