I specially designed this shirt with the victims of the recent Japanese earthquake and tsunami in mind.

My goal was to donate $500 to Red Cross. I reached and exceeded my goal quicker than I thought with many people's support, so I decided to keep doing this for a while. For each sale of this design, 25% of my profits will be donated to the "Matsushima Relief Fund" ( where the money will go directly to Matsushima to aid in their recovery. The "Save Japan" logo is optionally available on the back, by request.

The shirt depicts the islands of Matsushima (meaning the "Pine
Islands" in Japanese) near Sendai along with a well-known haiku often
attributed (although erroneously) to Matsuo Basho, expressing the
poet's loss of words at viewing the islands.

Ah, Matsushima!

Matsushima, traditionally considered to be one of the 3 most scenic
spots in all of Japan, is representative of the beauty of the region
of northeastern Japan that was hit in the earthquake and tsunami.

The calligraphy was done by my mom, who lives safely in another part of Japan!
