Since the first run of Help Japan posters quickly sold out earlier this week, I have had numerous emails in support of the cause and inquiries about when the poster will be printed for a second time. I am happy to announce that the poster is available once again in the new storefront.
The initial run of posters was a small compared to the immediate interest it received, something I could not have predicted when I launched the initiative in my small online store. But I would like to send a very warm thank-you to my friends at Merchline in Florida and Precision Atlantic here in Halifax. Without their immediate and generous efforts to help me out I could not have gotten more posters available to those interested in contributing to this cause. Nathan Murray at Merchline set me up with an excellent storefront with the capability of handling larger volumes of orders, and Tony Martin at Precision Atlantic for swiftly getting the posters printed on such incredibly short notice. This could not have happened without them.
Once again, all proceeds generated from sales of this poster will be donated to Japanese disaster relief following the 8.9 earthquake and tsunami of March 11. The first run of posters generated a donation of $7250.00 in 2 days which was donated to the Canadian Red Cross, and I would like to extend another huge thanks to those who stepped up and contributed to the cause.
Alternatively, if you would like more direct methods of donating to organizations dealing with relief efforts in Japan, here are a number of options:
