Thanks to the earthquake and ensuing crisis in Japan, KimonoMomo has been getting a lot of publicity. It’s not exactly what I had expected and makes me feel uneasy, but if I can use it to help others, I certainly will. While I would like to offer 100% of proceeds from my sales to help those in need, I do have a family to support on my own and so can only offer a smaller amount. It makes me feel very humble that I’m not doing as well as I’d like and so cannot afford to be more generous, but if even a little can make a difference, then that’s what I’ll do.
To that end, I will be listing several vintage kimono in my Etsy shop over the next few days, with portion of sales to be donated to the American Red Cross effort in Japan. I will post updates here, on Facebook and Twitter as the listings go up.
