Help Japan poster available now

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.

Purchase the ‘Help Japan’ poster here

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:

Canadian Red Cross
American Red Cross
Doctors without Borders
The Salvation Army
Global Living

Canada: Text REDCROSS to 30333 to donate $10
USA: Text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10
Ireland: Text REDCROSS to 57500 to donate €5

    Karie, my other posters ship with a free sticker, but not this one. Where did you read that?

    Great job there! We all appreciate this. However I couldn’t share this on my blogger, “due to too many insignificant letters in the URL?” Huh??!!
    Well, don’t worry I’ll fix this.

    Keep it up my friend!

    James, I happened to see your great poster via the Ace hotel’s blog. The rising sun flag you drew is impressive; “fragility” after the unbelievable damage and “strength” to recover the country – that’s what I felt. Thanks for thinking of us.
