Fashion responds to Japan earthquake - here's what you can do
Tuesday 15 March 2011
After an 8.9 magnitude earthquake hit Japan, fashion brands and personalities have mobilized their forces to help the victims. Learn how you can participate with these links.
Lady Gaga has designed a bracelet that says "We pray for Japan" in both English and Japanese. It costs $5, but you can make an additional donation at purchase. According to Gaga Daily, the bracelet - which will ship around March 25 - has raised $250,000 so far.
Retailers Uniqlo (whose CEO Tadashi Yanai already donated $26 million) and Comptoir des Cotonniers as well as design brand Theory will be accepting clothes donations at their stores worldwide.
Gilt Groupe, which owns the well-known Gilt flash sale sites, has teamed up with Global Giving to accept donations going to organizations providing medical care and other aid to victims.
