Japan Relief Earthquake Fund

A few weeks ago, while I was in Berkeley, Ca., I came across a store that had a flag of Japan on the display window on the corner of Telegraph Avenue & Park Street. As I went in, I realized that the store was set up like a bazaar. The Japanese community of Berkeley were selling their goods and valuables, such as crafts, hats, jewelries, clothes, shoes, and books, away to raise funds for Japan. I was very inspired by this, and that is how I had the idea of donating our proceeds from the TOMS Event a couple weeks ago to Japan Relief.

The store has its own website that tells you directly where to donate for Japan relief. All proceeds will go to the Japan Red Cross Society. Click here to donate and make a difference.
