Opportunites for ways to donate to Japan tsunami victims abound. Thank you so much for passing along your ideas yesterday; I've collected them here in the order they came in, and hope that they offer you some options if you are seeking a way to give or participate. There are some really lovely ideas here — thank you so much, everyone. If you have any other suggestions, please leave them in the comments on this post and I think people will check there, too.
Linda Sonia mentioned Julianna's crochet-covered pebbles, from which 50% of the sales proceeds will benefit the Red Cross Japan Relief Fund. And proceeds from the sale of many things at Stitch Happens will go to the RCJRF as well.
Amanda mentioned Sarah London's Crochet a Rainbow project, where your donated granny squares will be stitched together into blankets to donate to people affected by flooding in Australia, the Christchurch earthquake, and the Japan tsunami.
Jessie is holding a raffle benefitting World Vets.
Christine let me know that Superbuzzy is matching $5 donations, which will then be matched again by Knitting Fever, Inc. (so your $5 donation turns into $20).
Fifty percent from Maggie's hooked rug auction will be donated to the Red Cross.
Susan always has lots of great suggestions. She says:
My friend Daniela and I are organizing a new project — Quilts for Quake Survivors — here in Portland and hoping other people will get one started in their areas too! Bolt, Modern Domestic and Cool Cottons are supporting us too :)
This hand-printed poster is a fundraiser for the Red Cross.
Modern Relief Japan is organizing a series of quilt auctions.
And Weeks Ringle has a lovely post up here.
Danielle mentioned that Fiberphile Yarns has created a new colorway called Sakura (which is the color of cherry blossoms) with a portion of proceeds from this yarn's sales going to benefit Save the Children's Japan Earthquake Fund.
Sarah mentioned that proceeds from her painting of a cute Japanese girl will benefit the Red Cross.
Kieran is selling camellia prints.
