From Crista Dix of Life-Support Japan Print Auction

"It has been one month since the first earthquake and tsunami washed across Sendai and the northeast coast of Japan. 30 days ago we launched Life Support Japan, a creative community of photographers contributing to help in the recovery efforts. Since then, with almost 700 sales and 1,000 prints we have raised over $50,000 to help the people of Japan begin their recovery. We have delivered $25,000 to Direct Relief International, and the check for Habitat for Humanity is soon to be on its way.
Thank you all for your efforts, your support and your belief in our cause. It is because of you we can make a difference.
I am humbled by our efforts, and am filled with pride to be part of this amazing group of caring people."

It is truly amazing what is possible with some imagination and an open heart.
