It would be really remiss of me not to share this one with you. The artist is Yumiko Sasakawa(her full email below):

Hi Friends!

I am raising funds for Japan's Earthquake and Tsunami relief and was needing some friend-power to help me along.

I drew a picture for Japan and have been getting requests for prints, and it has now turned into a fundraising effort. The Financial Literacy Counsel Inc ( has so kindly donated me funds to pay for my printing costs so that 100% of all donations can go towards the Red Cross.
I was hoping you could share my print and pass along the info to your friends and family, via word of mouth or social media.

Nippon Makeruna! (Japan, Don't Give Up!) print
8.5 x 7.5" digital print, 12 pt cardstock, coated on one side, packaged in a plastic sleeve
$10 minimum donation
100% of all donations will go to the Red Cross

People can purchase through my Etsy store at
or email me directly at

If you or your group of friends are interested in a print, and would like to meet up with me to save on shipping fees, or you would like a batch of prints to sell amongst your friends, please let me know and we can work something out too :)

Thanks so much for your help and care for Japan!

ps: I will be at this event tomorrow, selling prints, if you are interested:
