Art in aid of the March 11 quake survivors
The Japan Times is offering readers the chance to own a limited-edition poster inspired by the disaster in Tohoku and created by illustrator Chris Mackenzie, with all proceeds going to The Japan Times Readers' Fund.
The money received (excluding postage costs) will be used to support the efforts of the Japanese Red Cross Society, Second Harvest Japan and the Japan Emergency Team, operated by Jhelp.com, to relieve the suffering left in the wake of the March 11 magnitude 9 Tohoku-Kanto earthquake and tsunami.
The B2-size poster (707 mm × 500 mm), printed on high-quality, semi-gloss-coat paper, is available for ¥5,000, including delivery.
This offer is limited to the first 200 orders, and is only available to readers within Japan. Orders are limited to a maximum of five posters per applicant.
Mojoprint (www.mojoprint.jp) in Osaka has generously offered to print the posters for free, meaning more of your money will go toward helping with the relief effort in Tohoku.
