Hey folks! Our friends at Magic Pony and Narwhal Art Projects have organized a fantastic silent auction and fundraiser to assist relief efforts in Japan. The exhibition and silent auction runs from this Thursday, March 31st, until Tuesday April 5th. We are proud to support this fine event, and encourage everyone to go and check it out!
FYI: The Japan fundraiser we are helping to organize, Artists Help Japan: Toronto, will run on Sunday April 17th and is a separate event.
Narwhal Art Projects, Invisible-Friends.com and friends are proud to present Toronto Hearts Japan, a fundraiser to support our friends, family & fellow artists in Japan. Our hearts have been broken by news of devastation, the risk of nuclear disaster, people separated from their homes and families, and we want to help. Toronto Hearts Japan lets all of us who feel a special connection to Japan lend a hand in our own way. All proceeds will be donated to The Red Cross and to helping rebuild the Birdo Flugas Arts Centre and Community in Shiogama.
