We are once again humbled by nature’s devastating force. A massive earthquake of 8.9 magnitude hit the Pacific Ocean, near Northeastern Japan on Friday, 11th of March, 2011. The earthquake triggered a massive tsunami which reached 10km inland, carrying houses, buildings, boats and cars with it. Additionally, a state of emergency has been declared at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, where scientists and technicians are struggling to prevent a nuclear disaster or epic proportions. Thousands have been declared dead by now, and thousands are left with no electricity and fresh water.
We are deeply saddened by this horror and send our prayers and condolences to the Japanese people. However, we’re not going to stop there, we are donating money to the Japanese Red Cross Society via Google Crisis Response: http://www.google.com/crisisresponse/japanquake2011.html
We are also asking you, our dear users, to do the same, help in any way that you can.
To show our support in a more artistic way, we are also sharing the “Japan will blossom again” design, image and source file in EPS format included to use freely. Please don’t be just an observer, inform yourself about how and what you can do to help. We all need to be that helping hand. Let’s all make sure “Japan will blossom again”.
