Il mondo dell'artigianato scosso dagli eventi catastrofici degli ultimi giorni si mobilita per una raccolta di fondi.
Dal 18 al 20 Marzo si terrà un'asta on-line su ebay con creazioni unique donate dagli artisti, il 100% verrà devoluto alle associazioni attive sul territorio Giapponese.
Si comincia venerdì, l'asta avrà l'ID venditore "Handmade for Japan"
Handmade for Japan è nata da un'idea di Ayumi Horie, Ai Kanazawa Cheung, and Kathryn Pombriant Manzella.
Già alcuni mesi fa un'impresa simile organizzata dal ceramista Vipoo Srivilasa aveva con successo raccolto una considerevole cifra a seguito della terribile inondazione nel Queensland. Diamo una mano !
In February Vipoo Srivilasa, a Melbourne-based ceramic artist, moved by the flooding tragedy in organized a ceramic auction to raise funds for the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal. The fantastic results are visible on Vipoo's site. Now is time to lend a hand to Japan !!

"Handmade for Japan"'s mission is to raise money through an online auction on March 18-20 for relief efforts to assist the victims of Japan's catastrophic earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear emissions.
Handmade for Japan is an online auction of unique, handmade art donated by concerned, invited artists. One hundred percent of all net proceeds collected via the auction will be donated to the relief efforts in Japan.

Previews of the auction items will be available in English and Japanese through Facebook pages and Twitter updates. All inquiries in either language should be sent to email@example.com.
Who We Are:
Handmade For Japan was borne out of concern for Japan's residents by Japanese-American ceramic artist Ayumi Horie. She, Ai Kanazawa Cheung, and Kathryn Pombriant Manzella have mobilized to solicit, promote, and auction handmade pieces of art generously donated by talented artists throughout North America and Japan.
