All proceeds go to Second Harvest Japan, the country’s first food bank. In the wake of the quake and tsunami, Second Harvest Japan has been driving two-ton truckloads of food, water and vital necessities into northern Japan every day. They are our heroes, and from the streets of San Francisco, let’s give them THE GIFT OF FOOD.

Come support! See you on the 5th!

Love,
Kayoko + Yoko
Team Umamimart

A year after the massive earthquake in Haiti, many of the people affected are still without shelter or the help they need.  We donated our portion of proceeds from fund raising shirts to Doctors without Borders (Obey’s portion of sales went to Artists for Peace & Justice).  Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is holding an online event tonight called A Year in Action to answer questions about their medical programs in Haiti.

Hear first-hand testimonies from some of MSF’s medical aid workers, and ask them your questions about the reality on the ground after the devastating earthquake, during the autumn flooding, and now during the current cholera outbreak.

Panel Event Featuring:

Sophie Delaunay, Executive Director of MSF-USA
Dr. Greg Elder,
Medical Deputy Desk Manager for Haiti
Michelle Mays,
MSF Nurse with two assignments in Haiti in 2010
Jason Cone,
Director of Communication for MSF-USA

Thursday, January 13, 2011 from 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM (ET)
