Online Platform Connects Artists with Charities to Create Wearable Philanthropy
The shirts are being sold in a number of outlets throughout New York City, as well as on the website.
NEW YORK, NY.- Love and Water Designs, an online platform that connects artists with charities to create Wearable Philanthropy, is holding a special project for Japan where we are printing limited-edition t-shirts with original works of five artists, and printing only 200 of each design. They are calling it the 1,000 Prayers For Japan Project and are donating 100% of the profits to the Nagagutsu Organization, a charity that is providing rubber boots and gloves to workers and refugees in Japan right now.

The first three artists, Catherine Eaton Skinner, Robert Indiana and Jane Dickson, have graciously donated designs for this amazing project, and Love and Water Designs are currently taking submissions through the website for two more original designs to print. The two artists with designs that receive the most attention through our site from our community will have their designs printed. The shirts are being sold in a number of outlets throughout New York City, as well as on the website.

You can order the first of the five shirts and also submit designs here: http://loveandwaterdesigns.com

Info on the Nagagutsu Organization:
My name is Noriyuki Koyama. In January 17, 1995, Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake occurred. My home was destroyed partially, and my family passed away. As a victim of the quake, I have survived the hard times with support from national aid and material goods from all over Japan. This included the north part of Japan, of course.

On March 11th, 2011 at 2:46 p.m. a 9.0-magnitude, the strongest earthquake ever recorded in the history of observation, hit north and east Japan. I could not stand without doing something after my experience with the "Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake".

First, I headed to help my maternal parents' family in which lives in Miyagi Prefecture Ishinomaki City. It was disaster. I found thousands of victims and a destroyed city. Hereafter, there is no doubt that the revival plan of the government and donations by nonprofit groups such as the Japanese Red Cross will support its relief. But this will take a longer time, at least 6 months or more in my experience.

The reality is that people need immediate help.

Mission of Project
There are many individual victims divided into parts of Japan that have not been reported in the media, though a new site is reported about each day. Many of these individuals in such areas are unable to reach the evacuation site. They can only receive support from those who are aware of where they are and how to reach them. I began to deliver goods to them from my car as much as possible so they could receive them directly.

The victims have lost their families, property, homes and belongings. They are working themselves and with minimal help to dig through the debris to find what they need without proper hand or foot protection. It is the mission of the Delivering Boots Project to bring them rubber boots and cotton work gloves in order to both protect them and speed up the process.
