My heart feels completely broken. Japan, I love you, we love you, and we hope everything will get better soon. The Australian Red Cross has now set up a Japan and Pacific Disaster Appeal. You can make a donation here.
The image above is of one of our most popular products, called Make City Tokyo. It is a set of 5 postcards that captures the essence of this incredible city, and each postcard can be cut and assembled into miniature models of Tokyo’s city icons. For the month of March, all profits made from the sale of this postcard set will be donated to the Australian Red Cross, Japan and Pacific Disaster Appeal.
Also, there is a wonderful auction happening over at Li’l Magoolie, called the Li’l Quake Appeal. It’s to raise funds for the New Zealand Red Cross Christchurch Earthquake Appeal. There are loads of gorgeous products to bid on, including one of our own, by paper artist Ingrid Siliakus. Please tell your friends.
Upon A Fold would not exist without our friends in Japan. A huge selection of the amazing products we have in the shop are by Japanese designers and artists. To all our dear friends over there and to everyone in Japan and Christchurch – we send you LOVE and HUGS and HOPE that everything will be ok, very soon. xoxo
UPDATE – Thank you to all who contributed to our fundraiser. We raised $300 from the postcard sales. A donation has now been made to the Australian Red Cross Japan Disaster Appeal. Thank you so much, every little bit counts!
