Due to tremendous support from the CalArts and Temple University communities, as well as numerous concerned individuals worldwide, my type foundry and select shoppe Wordshape generated $5000 for Japan’s Red Cross, which was just sent. A giant round of thanks to all who purchased magazines, books and licensed fonts – you all pitched in to help in a very meaningful way.

Also, a giant thank you to the participants worldwide in Inspire Japan events – together, you have raised over $40,000 (!) to benefit rebuilding projects in the north of Japan.
