for japan, by alicia bock.
well, first off, i have to say, it’s not really been a fab week to say the least, nor is it in all probability a very fab friday for us. i think our thoughts are heavy with concern for japan, as well as fears for our own loved ones. natural disasters can do that to you – there’s not much we can do to avoid this to protect our families and friends (save for trying to be good to our planet). so we feel saddened for the people of japan, and kind of vulnerable and unnerved. at least i think that may be the collective feeling.
thus, it’s hard to blog about ‘pretty things’ without feeling like it starts to become trite. but, it’s also my job, so it’s a weird line to cross – do i do my best to help cheer you with distractions, or help to remind us of how we might help? so today, on a not-so-fab friday, i’d like to share some more ideas from designers and artists doing their best in the only way they know how – creatively – to help out japan. proceeds from the sales of these products will all go to aid in relief efforts for japan. if you know of others please feel free to leave the links in the comments. please be well, everybody.
