On March 11, an 8.9 earthquake struck off the northeast coast of Japan near the city of Sendai. It is the most powerful earthquake they ever experienced.
Artists Help Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Fund is responding to the immediate needs of survivors as well as short-term to long-term recovery projects undertaken by the affected communities.
THANK YOU EVERYONE for your generous support. Artists who donated their artwork, people who contributed their money (and were lucky enough to get their hands on the beautiful art!), and everyone else who helped us spread the word.
We are touched by all your hearts and are impressed with the tremendous result. It was well beyond our initial goal. I am sure the thoughts out of our collective efforts will reach the hearts of the victims more than the fund itself.
But most importantly, let us all not forget about ongoing issues they face in Japan. Let us keep our eye on the recovery effort of our partners in the affected areas as well as on the nuclear disaster situation that has yet to be settled down as of today.
