Happening this Friday, March 18th at Q Pop Shop and also online.
Details & Press Release below:
As you all know, a terrible tragedy has hit Japan. The amount of loss and damage is still not known but the casualties are now in the thousands...and believed to be in the ten thousands!!!
This is a terrible reminder that disaster can strike at any minute and it's at times like these that we need to know that people would come to our aid and help us in our darkest hour.
Q Pop is now accepting donations of artwork for this cause. ...We will be selling work online as well as hosting a benefit auction to raise funds for victims of this crisis. We are asking all our talented friends to please donate anything you might have..sketches..full pieces..old stuff..or new....anything you think might be able to raise some money for these people. Timing is important and we'll need to get artwork for this as soon as possible. If you can send scans or digital files first that would also help so that we can put work online immediately for sale.I know a lot of you are busy with your own lives...but please take a little time to do something that may help people survive.
ALL proceeds will go to select local hospitals, shelters, and relief groups in all affected areas in Japan. Donate with 100% confidence your money will go to where it's supposed to and not get tied up somewhere.
You can email me at : firstname.lastname@example.org or call the shop at 213-687-7767...with questions or donations..
