The Bento4Japan fundraiser organized by my fellow bento bloggers has already raised thousands of dollars to aid Japan's disaster relief - and it's still running! And, here's a chance for you to get one of the prizes that was offered!

Update: The box has been sold for an amazing $380! I want to protect the privacy of the winning bidder, but I can reveal she's from the south-eastern part of the U.S., and she's going to gift it to her 85 year old mother. What a lovely gift, and thought!


Here's a chance to get a beautiful magewappa bento box and help Japan too!

A message to the JustBento community

As you know, Japan was hit by a devastating earthquake on March 11, 2011. The epicenter was off the north-eastern coast of Honshu, the main island of the Japanese archipelago. Much of that coastline has been destroyed. Thousands are dead, more are still missing. There are supply-line problems due to destroyed harbors and damaged roads (now gradually getting solved) that are causing more people to suffer and even die. And there's the ongoing, serious situation at the Fukushima No. 1 (Daiichi) nuclear power plant.
