I've been thinking that I want to do more to help with the efforts in Japan.
I'm not remotely athletic, so physical feats like doing a sponsored run are out of the question.
I don't really bake, so I don't want to provide paltry efforts for the wonderful Cakes for Japan.
I've not really got the time to auction stuff on eBay for the brilliant Bento4Japan campaign, much as I would like to take part.
Then I realised that I had lots of rather nice photos that I'd taken in Japan which languished in this weird half-life on Flickr, as I'd never got round to printing them out.
So I thought to myself, "I really like tote bags and I reckon others do - let's use those photos to make some bags for Japan".
I played around with all the designs to make them a bit funkier, and I'm pretty pleased with how they came out.
The bags are only £8 each and all proceeds will go directly to the Japanese Red Cross (that's £1.10 per bag). And there's free shipping till 31 March with the code HELP4JP.
And if you don't fancy buying a bag, you can donate to the British Red Cross using the links below.
@sauerkrauttosushi - Thanks, I do like its simplicity :)
@weebesom - Thank you, graphic designer lady!
@Miss Whiplash - Domo Domo Domo KUN!
@Dennis K - Thanks Dennis! I hope your friends and family are okay - your folks are mainly in Okinawa right?
@Michelle Peters-Jones - The site posts internationally. The free shipping code may work for Canada but I'm not sure - try it :)
Otherwise it should automatically calculate shipping for you but shouldn't be too much as the bags are very light.
I don't control any of the physical side - all I did was make and upload the designs :P
@WalshyMK - You could always get more than one ;P
@The Grubworm - BAGZ? Pff. Ghibli does indeed rock :)
@Patrick - Aww, thank you!
