Since its foundation, Hug Japan has been continuing to come out with new charity goods.
＜Global Message Relay＞
Since the Great East Japan Earthquake hit Tohoku, Hug Japan has been supporting children in disaster areas through art and design. We will be publishing a collection of children’s works that we collected over a
year, and selling them for charity. All sale proceeds will be used to fund future Hug Japan activities to support children in disaster areas.
Global Message Relay – 2000 JPY
＜THE DAY & AFTER＞
The reality of Kitaibaraki, one of the disaster areas of 3/11, remains largely unknown to the world. Many still reside in the area, trying to rebuild after the devastation while enduring the fear of radiation.
This pieces in this collection have been selected from some 7000 photographs that were taken over the course of six months. All of the chosen pieces portray the resilience and persistence of the people of
Kitaibaraki. Thanks to the cooperation of our collaborating photographers, we are able to offer these collection books for the same price as Global Message Relay.
