Raffle for Japan

So this is my attempt to contribute to the relief efforts for the affected areas of Japan.

I'm raffling off a recent painting I posted here on the blog and a brand new, made especially for this raffle, iPad cover. You can see pictures and details below.

Here's how it works.

I will ship anywhere in the world where the post office delivers.

Each entry/comment will equal one raffle "ticket" for one of the two handmade items below. It's your choice which one you'd like to enter to win, just let me know in the comment. 

The 8x8 painting based on a loose interpretation of "Snow White" is acrylic on wood.

The iPad case was sewn by me especially for this raffle. As you can see, it's based on the Japanese flag, with a closing flap and a small back pocket for holding a cleaning cloth (for the iPad screen). It's made of 100% recycled fiber felt and it's washable. I used the iPad 1 dimensions, but since the iPad 2 is smaller, it would also fit.

Bids are to be made in US$
Each raffle entry must be a donation of $5 (International Medical Corps) or $10 (Global Giving).

To enter, go to International Medical Corps and make a donation of $5 or go to Global Giving and make a $10 donation for the Japan relief fund, when you have done it come back to this post and leave a comment with your reciept number and you must also leave a valid email address (you can write the address in the format of mymailname ‘at’ hotmail ‘dot’ com)

You may enter as many times as you like but each time you need a new receipt number. 

For help with the donation you can refer to this post

Raffle closes at 12.00pm JST 26th March

If you make a mistake or forget to add you email address please delete the first post and re-write it.

Winner will be drawn by random (

The giveaway / raffle / auction is being held on this blog, in cooperation with a Bit of This and a Bit of That. We are in no way affiliated with global giving, that's just our chosen method of getting funds safely to the affected area.

If you are not interested in the two items listed above, do check out the other blogs and items being auctioned/raffled off at a Bit of This and a Bit of That. And thank you for your help.


  1. I just donated $10 at the Global Giving website. But how do I get a receipt number for your raffle? They just replied back with a confirmation that $10 would be charged to my phone bill.

  2. I love your site and as I browsed your blog I decided to award you the Creative Blog Award.

    Go to and pick up your award.
