For Japan

In a random search for carved crayons I stumbled across one of the most inspiring and touching things I’ve seen in ages.

A sculptor and mixed-media artist, Diem Chau, has set a goal of donating 10,000 USD to the Japanese Red Cross Society to benefit the people of Japan in the difficult weeks and months ahead.

And she’s using her artistic talents to achieve it.

On March 16th, she announced that she will raffle off a crayon family portrait and that 100% of ticket sales will benefit earthquake and tsunami relief efforts in Japan.  Tickets are $10 and the drawing is scheduled for midnight on March 23rd.  So far, she has raised more than $4500 for the Japanese Red Cross Society!

Go buy a ticket (or 10!) and support this worthwhile endeavor.  You should also  pass the word by blogging, tweeting, and informing your friends on facebook!
