Handmade for Japan

by Nancy of nancyrosetta

In the wake of the horrendous natural disaster in Japan, a fantastic way to donate has been born. An auction of impeccable art and craft featuring many talented artists who make their art by hand. The Handmade for Japan Ebay auction will be online Thursday, March 24th at 8pm through Sunday, March 27th at 8pm.

Their mission is to raise money for relief efforts to assist the victims of Japan's catastrophic earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear emissions.
