Text and images from the Tomodachi Calling web site.
Tomodachi Calling is a charity webshop with T-shirts and other cool stuff. We are a couple of international friends who have met in Tokyo, either because we are living there by choice, were born there or were visiting.. Most of us were in Tokyo at the time the big earthquake hit northeast Japan on Friday March 11, 2011, 14:46 JST. The unfolding events in the minutes, hours and days following the quake left us in a state of shock and terror. It made us feel helpless. So instead of hoping and waiting, we decided to combine and to act. We are therefore asking friends (in Japanese: “tomodachi”), focussing on artists whose works we admire and creative people we like, to contribute a design for our charity-webshop. Please check this shop often! We are uploading new designs and artists on a daily basis!
And there are so many other interesting artists all working together.
