Comfort slippers for Japan

I wanted to share this with my readers. Reiko Arato is a knitter on Ravelry who is selling this cute slipper pattern to raise funds for the victims in Japan. The pattern is only $2.50 and you can purchase it here. Below is Reiko's message about her effort:

Dear knitters,

I was born and grow up in Sendai, Japan, and have lived in Shanghai, China since last year.
My parents live in Sendai. Many friends also live there.
For my hometown and Japan which had suffered serious tsunami damage, I had thought what I was able to do from Shanghai.
Then, I decided to sell my pattern and to contribute the total amounts I received for Japan to the Japanese Red Cross Society.

The pattern consists of one page.

In the stricken area, hygiene, food, information, and all other things are insufficient.
I hope you will cooperate with me.

Sincerely yours,
Reiko Arato

What a great idea. It is unfortunate that the government is having to deal w/the nuclear plant; it seems to be slowing down recovery efforts.
