On March 11, 2011 a 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of northern Japan causing a 23 foot tsunami to hit the coast. The resulting damage has left hundreds of thousands with out water, electricity and camped out in temporary shelters.
Now K2 Snowboarding and Spacecraft Collective http://www.spacecraftcollective.com/ have teamed up to help bring a little comfort to Japanese tsunami victims in need. Spacecraft has donated 1500 beanies and K2 Snowboarding is taking care of the shipping along with including several hundred t-shirts, hoodies and beanies.
Once in Japan the supplies will be distributed to relief shelters by Tsutomu-Endo http://topicslog.exblog.jp/ , Japanese photographer and good friend of Spacecraft.
The other morning we picked up the boxes of beanies from Spacecraft and got a chance to check out their beach house office.
