You and probably everyone you know has been affected in some way by the disasters in Japan, whether emotionally or personally. Regardless, most of us feel inclined to help out in some way.
Local freelance designer, Lain Lee 3, decided that his way of helping out would be through one of the things he does best; design. Lain Lee 3 has designed a new Limited Edition T-shirt around the Japanese word, "Gaman," which represeents endurance, patience and perseverence - especially in times of trouble. He is selling his shirts for $25 a piece, and ALL of the proceeds will go directly to relief organizations, including the Red Cross. He has this to say about his newest design:
"'Gaman' is a Japanese word meaning 'endurance, patience, perseverance and tolerance.' More importantly, 'Gaman' is a way of life, a unifying idea that helps the Japanese to persevere and overcome any obstacle.
