On March 26th, Shop for Japan wants a one-day global community event of consumerism to help in reconstruction and relief in Japan. 

In this Shop for Japan campaign, businesses globally are encouraged to donate a percentage of their revenue from March 26th net sales to Japan for relief efforts. Any kind of business, big or small, can sign up online for this campaign, where there is also information about the relief organizations available to donate to and posters to print out and put up in your store window.

The Shop for Japan idea spurred from American designers Brooks Hassig and Kathryn Storm who have no affiliation with any Japan relief organization but just want to push forward some social good for people who are desperately in need.
