Bags for Japan
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.
