While I was researching and googling for this blog I found the term Whoops Factor being used to refer to the Japanese nuclear accident. It gave me the idea to do something to help the Tsunami and Earthquake victims with a fundraising event. I love Japan, so I would like to help by selling my photos from Bonnie Levinson Photography taken during my recent trip to Japan. I will donate the proceeds to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Funds through Global Giving.
Just one week after the earthquake hit, Global Giving disbursed $725,000 from Global Giving's Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund to six organizations already in Japan working on relief and long-term recovery efforts. See how the Donations to Global Giving are being used.
I've attached four images of my Japan Underwater series that I took last October in Kanazawa, Japan at the Twenty First Century Museum. I feel they are an evocative portrayal of the nature of water and light. People ask me all the time how I did them. If you buy one, I will tell you.
These photographs are available in two sizes:
- (18" x 24") $350 and (24" x 36") $450 unframed, printed on fine art archival photo paper.
- Please email me of your interest, which photograph you would like—and its size— plus your phone number to BLAM. I will deliver the photos directly to you.
- I will donate the money from the sales to Japan's Earthquake and Tsunami Relief fund.
- (There are also a limited number of framed works available for purchase)
If you would like to make a contribution directly to the Fund you can also go to MY FUNDRAISING PAGE at Global Giving .org. Thank you for your generosity.
