We Heart Japan benefit @ Meltdown Comics

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Start Time: 08:00PM    End Time: 11:00PM

We invite you to support Japan this Thursday, March 17, at our charity event WeHeartJapan. Join voice actors and artists as we come together to give back to the country that has given us so much. There will be an art auction, as well as signings from your favorite anime celebrities. The event is 8p-11p at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood. Hope to see you there!

CHARITY
All proceeds raised by the event will go towards the “Japan NGO Earthquake Relief and Recovery Fund”. WeHeartJapan took great care in choosing a charity that we felt would best help the quake and tsunami victims in Japan. At the time of this posting, Japan has only asked for help from two US based charities: “Doctors without Borders” and “Search Dog Foundation”. “Doctors without Borders” does not have a way for donators to specify which country or cause they would like their monies to go and the later is an organization that dispatches dogs to help rescuers find survivors. Search Dog Foundation has sent a team of 16 dogs to Japan and has already raised $100,000 toward this organization. While both charities are wonderful organizations, and we support them whole-heartedly, we opted to pick the “Japan NGO Earthquake Relief and Recovery Fund” who is working with the “Give One” initiative in Japan, which will give money directly to local Japanese charities involved in the relief efforts.
