In March we profiled Love & Water Designs – a company giving back one t-shirt at a time. They recently launched a special relief project for Japan called “1000 Prayers for Japan” in response to the earthquake in Japan on March 11th. Love & Water Designs has joined with the Nagagutsu charity, an on the ground group helping with immediate relief efforts in Japan by bringing rubber boots and cotton gloves to the workers and victims of the earthquake and tsunami. Their work has helped refugees return to their homes and sift through the rubble to locate personal belongings.
An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane. To honor this legend, Love & Water Designs is producing 1000 limited edition t-shirts created by artists – 200 each of five different designs – with 100% of the profits going to the Nagagutsu Foundation. Attached to each shirt will be a postcard prayer to allow you to send a message back to Japan through Love & Water Designs.
Nagagutsu’s “Delivering Boots Project” is helping earthquake victims who have lost families, property, homes, and belongings by giving them protection they need – boots and gloves – to dig through the debris.
