Designers for Japan is a loose collective of designers, photographers, art directors and imagemakers from around the world who were spurred by the catastrophe of Friday March 11 to do something, anything to help and to express our love for our friends and colleagues in Japan. So far, it encompasses a set of prints to be sold for charity, an upcoming charity auction and this website. We hope there will be more to come. If you would like to help, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.Designers For Japan is:Jonathan Barnbrook / Mark Blamire / Neville Brody / Patrick Burgoyne / Rei Inamoto / Gavin Lucas / Graham Wood
A FEW years back LIAM GALLAGHER felt more strongly about his sausage dog Ruby than he did about charity.
But in the last few months he has dramatically changed his tune.
The generous rocker has earned a small fortune for Teenage Cancer Trust by donating proceeds from a specially designed Pretty Green T-shirt.
And now he is putting on a charity gig to raise money for the victims of the disaster in Japan.
Liam and his BEADY EYE bandmates will headline a benefit gig at Brixton Academy on Mother’s Day, Sunday April 3.
The singer has persuaded Modfather PAUL WELLER, GRAHAM COXON and THE CORAL to join the bill.
A beautiful Japanese tradition tells that a wish may be granted in response to someone with the devotion to fold one thousand origami cranes. This project seeks to draw on that ancient healing and show that the emotional blow received can be responded to through the strength of solidarity and human compassion.
Artists have created beautiful designs that can be made into origami cranes. A donation to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund will allow you to download a design with instructions to guide you in making a crane. We are hoping many thousands of you will fold and then place your crane somewhere prominent so that it might inspire others to also focus their intent and devotion toward those in the grip of this tragedy.
被災地応援と募金のために行われた葉加瀬太郎氏のロンドンコンサートの報告とメッセージ Taro Hakase was one of many people who organised charity events in support of Japan tsunami disaster. The concert in the video took place in London 17.03.2011. The message is to raise awareness of the importance of willingness to support those in need, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant the act maybe. I hope to contribute in a small way through means that are available to me. If you can spread the message of support to those who need it the most, by linking the video to other sites, downloading it and showing it anywhere available to you, that would be amazing! Anyhow, thanks for watching, please do spread the positive message of the act of giving, either in materials, time, hugs or just a few kind words…
