In keeping with my art theme of the day. I came across the Tsunami of Support website that supports the New Orleans Japan Quake Fund, that has been set up by my friends and JET Alumnus, Doug Tassin and Daniel Morales in conjunction with a consortium of Japan-affiliated organizations in New Orleans – Jetaa NOLA, Japan Club, Japan Society, the local Ikebana Chapter, and the Japanese Garden Society. I wrote about the New Orleans Japan Quake Fund in a previous blog post. I just checked out their site now and they’ve made over $160,000 for the relief fund and that is AMAZING. They are giving the money directly to the Greater New Orleans Foundation the region’s oldest community foundation.
From the Tsunami of Support website you can order posters to help the NOLA Quake Fund. They are also going to have an event, if you’re in the New Orleans area, the Art Opening will be held on May 6th at 7pm at the address below.

Normally this is where I’d put a picture from the website, but this time around, you’re just going to have to click the link and check it out yourself.
