Design for Japan

Since the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan’s Northwestern coast on March 11th, designers and artists all over the world have come together to create innovative designs or donate proceeds of their work to relief efforts. I love the idea of selling and sharing art to help the people of Japan.

Aside from creating art in response to the crisis in Japan, many artists at Etsy are donating percents of sales to charities, and in Atlanta Georgia two young artists are taking to the streets to sell their art for fundraising purposes. Share the creative ways you’ve seen money being raised for Japan in the comments below.
