Cherry Blossoms for Japan

My thoughts have been with the people of Japan this weekend.

I've decided to donate 50% of sales of my cherry blossom brooches and hairbands this week (13th-19th March) to the Japan Tsunami Appeal.


The cherry blossoms are available from my website, my Etsy shop, my Folksy shop and my DaWanda shop.


For each £10 item I will donate £5, for each £5 sale item I will donate £2.50. For the sake of simplicity I'll also be donating these amounts in £s for cherry blossom items sold via my DaWanda shop where prices are in Euros. (Update: the £5 sale items have now sold out but there are still lots of brooches & hairbands left in stock, and I will make more if they sell out).

I'll post my donation receipt on the blog next week.

Thank you for doing this! I am hoping to send mine to a friend in Japan...I think it will help her to know so many people are thinking of them.

Such a wonderful and generous gesture. My heart really goes out to the poor people in Japan and their ongoing continuous plight, that just seems to get worse and worse every hour. I feel they are going to need our support for many months to come, to help rebuild some semblence of normality.
