Pacific Crisis Fundraiser

Yesterday, just as i was about to run off to work, i caught the words "earthquake" and "tokyo" from the news in the background. My head turned and i was gazing into my tv, deeply shocked. Another catastrophe and this time it really hit me personal because my cousin and his wife live and work in Tokyo.
Today i got news from my family and they are fine - for now. We all hope now, the wind won't turn and the reactor-situation won't make it any worster as it already is....

This said, of course i accepted to blog about the "Pacific Crisis Fundraiser", charity event which will start at march 16th and run til april 10th to raise money to help the victims suffering from the Tsunami. The infos below are from the Notecard i received yesterday:

An emergency fundraising effort for the victims of the crisis in the Pacific that hit on the 10th/11th of march is being set up.

SL is an international community, with a strong base in Japan specifically. This disaster is worldwide and affects us all, as a community SL has risen up time and time again to help out in times of distress, including very recently.

In september 2010 11,000 us dollars was raised for the pakistan flood crisis relief fund (UNICEF) at an sl event. An event organised in four days. This is an example of what our community can do, and we are attempting to prepare for a similar, simple but effective, event.

We are calling for anyone who wishes to help with this fundraiser. We will be providing vendors that donate 100% of sales to a charity account (Charity Shelter) for people to place in their stores and at an event location. The products in these vendors don't have to be new, but the more new and exclusive items available the more money we will raise, so even a variation of an existing product is appreciated.

We welcome any and all participation and interest in this event - if you'd like to participate as a designer please go to - http://www.tinyurl.com/pacificfund

Please note that 100% of all money raised will go to the charity UNICEF. Land was donated by Glam Affair and all volunteers are giving their time without charge.
