Why I Support #WeHelpNepal
I believe that the Nepalese people want is to be able to better living for support in the wake of the disaster.
I am Japanese who experienced the Great Hanshin Earthquake in Japan 20 years ago. I had to experience the importance of the reconstruction of the importance and residents mainly work in the disaster area. 10 years ago I began to sell the affected areas of the product of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami in Japan. I have experienced a large earthquake again in Tokyo in 2011. In addition I have to experience the fear of radioactivity. Now I am implementing the healing of mind of residents of the taking advantage of the experience of the earthquake weaving the use Japan's tsunami disaster area.
I will sell the Nepal cheer goods Thailand and Japan of tsunami victims and the nuclear power plant accident of the displaced people have made.
I will donate the amount of more than $ 0.8 per one product for Nepal.

ABOUT OUR CAMPAIGN
We are not a traditional disaster relief organization.
We Help Nepal is network of artists, business owners, doctors, teachers and development workers who have lived or are currently living in Nepal. We are united by our mutual connection to Nepal and our commitment to alternative development models.
Our expertise comes from our awareness of the Nepali social and political landscape, and our connections to local organizations that are beneath the international radar.
The recent earthquake was a natural disaster intensified by the man-made forces of rapid development, poverty, and conflict driven displacement. This fund will support immediate earthquake relief and rebuilding efforts rooted in a philosophy of relief to self-reliance, disaster to sustainable development.
We recognize that in this tragedy there are seeds of hope that will sprout from the rubble.
