Happy Saturday everyone!
While we are off to start our weekends by heading to work, relaxing or getting ready to hang out with family and friends. Parts of Japan are still reeling from the devastation that took place just a few short days ago. During my usual blog readings I came across this great cause by my favorite naturalista, Solange Knowles and her little boy, created in an effort to help victims of the earthquake:
JULEZ FOR JAPAN is a watercolor designed t-shirt, inspired by the recent tragic earthquake and Tsunami in Japan. My 6 year old son, Daniel Julez. J. Smith, was highly affected by the devastating footage he witnessed of the catastrophe.After a series of questions and conversations, he decided he wanted to contribute in some way.Using a scan of his watercolor interpretation of the Japanese flag, (he did this ALL on his own:) generous shirt donations from American Apparel, and a sleek logo designed by Clark Butterfield, we created the "Julez for Japan" shirt.Please visit our partner BIG CARTEL to purchase your "Julez for Japan" t-shirt.ALL OF THE PROCEEDS WILL GO TO PEACE WINDS JAPAN.Peace Winds Japan is an amazing non- profit and rapid responding disaster relief organization in the Asia Pacific who are actively on the grounds in Japan now delivering relief items to evacuation centers now.Thank you for your support,Solange Knowles & Daniel Julez J. Smith
If you're interested in reading about a first hand account of what happened as well as the aftermath, please visit my fellow Jamaican and blogger friend THE GIRL FROM DUMFRIES IN JAPAN as she shares her experience. Be safe and grateful this weekend everyone :)
