On March 11, 2011, a magnitude-8.9 earthquake hit off the shore of Japan, unleashing a 23-foot (seven-meter) tsunami and leaving enormous destruction in its wake.
Hundreds have been killed in this disaster and thousands have been left homeless, as the tsunami swept through, causing mass destruction and setting off widespread fires that burned out of control.
“The suffering of one is the suffering of the other… When we see that we and all living beings are made of the same nature, how can there be division between us?… the human race suffers as a family.
It’s clear that the fate of each individual is inextricably linked to the fate of the whole human race.” -Thich Nhat Hanh
Let's help our fellow members of the human family. Please donate to help Japan disaster relief.
For every $5 you donate, you will get an entry into a raffle for these beautiful pieces of art.
The fundraiser ends JULY 4TH, 23:59 PST. You can continue to donate afterward, of course, but the art raffle will end then.
