We need your help....

We need your help....

Hi everyone.

On March 11th, there was a big earthquake, the biggest earthquake ever to hit Japan recorded as magnitude 9.0 in Tohoku region. Also, that earthquake led another big quake in Kanto capital region. I am seeing these scenes by news and just feel so terrified by this tragedy....

I want to call out for your help. I am thinking of selling artists/scrapper's creations on online in Japan(they can be cards or anything) and donate the profit to Japan Red Cross Society, where they can send the money to the places that were affected.

If you are able to help, please send me an email to "" so I can send you the address to send your creation(s).

***Since all profits will be donated, I hope you will understand that I will not be able to pay for the expenses.

Thank you so much. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
