Jewelry for Japan

$30 of the proceeds from the sales of this necklace by Ken + Dana will be donated to the Red Cross. Read for the meaning of the inscription.

Although many of us in my little part of the world have not been directly affected by the devastation in Japan, I'm certain that the images, the news, and the stories of people just like you and me have been equally overwhelming and utterly heartbreaking.  It's times like these, albeit senseless and tragic, that we have a chance to unite. It's a time to appeal to the broader concerns of humanity- to help in a time of need, to extend a part of yourself whether it is time, money, or even just prayers. It's times like these when we do not think for a second about our individual differences, but we undoubtedly know at our core that we are all inherently the same.

This necklace by Ken + Dana Designs is a testament to the inner, most important similarities of mankind, our similarities. It features the identifier for the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, the Public Law (PUB.L.) that abolished the national-origin quotas that had been in place in the United States since the Immigration Act of 1924. With the purchase of this necklace, you will not only be honoring a sense of unity, but you will also be donating $30 to the Red Cross relief efforts in Japan.

One humanitarian was being interviewed on CNN- he had the best comment to the by standers,

"In times like these we are all Japanese."
