As the situation unfolds in the aftermath of the 9.0 magnitude earthquake, aftershocks, destructive tsunami, we can’t help but think of what tragedy ensues its victims and the country of Japan. I read up on current events every morning and as a mother, I am always thinking of all the people that have been displaced or have lost their livelihood. My business partner and I feel the urgency and want to use our talents to do something to help in some way.
We are going to start a fundraiser and contribute half of our proceeds to the American Red Cross: Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund. We think every little bit helps, and it will definitely be an ongoing task to help relocate and support all it’s victims.

The design was inspired by the beauty of spring & all the cherry blossoms that would be seen in the country of Japan during this time of year. The yellow birds represent hope and peace that we wish for the people during this difficult time.
“In all things it is better to hope than to despair.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Geothe
Here are some pictures that my sister took when she was in Japan. Luckily she was safe after the earthquake happened and was able to come back home.
And here are some images that has made us all want to help in any way we can.
