Artist Aid: Japan Tsunami Earthquake Relief

I have been wanting to help after seeing the devastation over in Japan. Feeling helpless not being a billionaire I didn't know what I could really do. However, I realized that every little bit helps when I joined a group Artist Aid that is dedicated to donating money from sales to different charity organizations helping Japan. I have chosen Global Giving.
GlobalGiving supports grassroots projects around the world. This project will disburse funds to organizations providing relief and emergency services to victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. GlobalGiving is working with International Medical Corps, Save the Children, and other organizations on the ground to provide relief to victims.
I have an entire section in my shop of items I am donating all the proceeds to this charity.
Here's one of the pieces I have up for charity!

All donations will be given in the honor of the person that purchased the item.
I greatly appreciate your help and charitable purchase.

Here are some of my other teammates that have some wonderful items also for sale with the proceeds going to the charities of their choice all aiding Japan during this crisis.
