For the Love of Children

 i adore Gwen Stefani. i have since my brother introduced me into all the wonders of No Doubt in their early days. what i have come to love most about her now is not only her amazing music and fabulous sense of style but all the other wonderful things that she does. i am a huge fan of hers and i think what she is doing for Japan is flippin' amazing!!!

Gwen Stefani has already personally donated $1,000,000 to Save the Children's Japan relief fund!!! and now she has created ways for her fans like you and i to join in her efforts to help save the children of Japan.

"i have been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love, appreciation and respect for the japanese people and their culture. the disaster in Japan is beyond heartbreaking and i want to do anything i can to help. i would never be able to make a gesture like this without the love and support of all the fans over all these years." - Gwen Stefani

Gwen has designed a Harajuku Lovers shirt specifically for Japan and will soon be hosting an auction where you can bid to win some fabulous stuff!!

Lets start with the HL shirt!!

This is the official photo advertisement for the HL shirt

so the photo tells you all the details of how much this shirt means and most importantly is that 100% of the net proceeds go to helping Japan. even more exciting is that if you choose to purchase this shirt it is limited edition and it will not be sold in stores. here is a close look at the shirt...

this is a super cute shirt! the shirt is selling for $40.00US on the No Doubt website. when you purchase the shirt you have the option to donate a little extra if you'd like. again the net proceeds all go to Save the Children's Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund. ladies please keep in mind that this a Juniors size shirt NOT a womens size shirt. please keep this in mind when ordering your shirts. i ordered my shirt not only to donate to Japan but to have a nice memory of my small contribution in effort to help save the children of Japan.

in addition to the shirt Gwen is hosting an auction!! for those who are financially capable to make a more substantial donation, this auction is a great way to show Japan how much you care :) here is the official photo advertisement for the auction. you can go to the No Doubt website to sign up for the auction and updates about it.

for the love of Japan, all things Harajuku and Gwen Stefani...lets all do our best to donate no matter how big or small the amount.
