  • The Sun Will Rise Again | Tshirt for Japan

    Mar 18 | Evan | 2 Comments |

    A friend and local Raleigh artist, Adam Peele, has come up with a great new tshirt to raise money to help Japan. It’s been about one week since the earthquake and tsunami ruined the lives, homes and even complete cities of many Japanese residents. In some cases, all it took was 7 minutes for cities like Rikuzentakata to be wiped off the map. The following video is in Japanese, but you don’t need to understand Japanese to understand the video:

    Japan needs your help and one way you can help, is to buy one of Adam’s shirts. From their site:

    Our hearts are broken.
    100% of the profit from this shirt will go to the japanese red cross.
    Please let us know if you have any questions about the final destination of the proceeds.
    The text on the shirt says “the sun will rise again”

    Shirts are no longer available, thank you for your support!

    March Madness for Japan

    Mar 14 | Evan | No Comments |

    First of all, thank you again to everyone who has reached out to my wife and I. It really means a lot to us. Now it is time to help Japan.

    By now, you have all seen how horrible things that are going on in Northern Japan and you are American, you probably have filled out your bracket (or at least started to). Now it’s time to make it count. To help those affected by the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Tohoku, Japan, I’ve created a March Madness for Japan group to help raise money for Japan. 85% of the money raised will go to an organization involved with helping out and 15% will go towards the top 5 finishers. The more the merrier, so have fun while helping Japan! Thank you in advance!

    Great Tohoku Japan Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011

    Mar 11 | Evan | No Comments |

    It’s with an anxious, heavy heart I’m blogging today. By now I’m sure you have heard and seen the horrific imagery coming out of Japan. The earthquake struck just off the coast where I used to live in Japan, Shiogama, Miyagi Prefecture of Tohoku, Japan, just about 15 minutes by train from Sendai. Thankfully, my wife’s family has checked in and they are all okay, but I’m still waiting to hear back from many friends in the worst hit areas and a few in Tokyo. Thank you to everyone that has contacted me to send their prayers and kind words. For those of you actually in Japan or concerned with those over there like myself, check out Gakuranman and Surviving In Japan for a great collections of helpful links.

    Also, I know this is probably too early, but especially with my connection with the Miyagi area, I’d love to be involved in helping things get back on track there. If you are aware of any mission, church, temple or any group leading a trip over there, please let me know. Whether I’m just needed to document as a photographer or working on something else, I’d love to help. In the meantime, here are some ways we can all help.

    Again, thank you to everyone for your support and kind words. It means a lot to me and to everyone in Japan or connected to those in Japan.
