Money For Japan & Higo Benefit Sale

Bank Wire to Japan
I wired $6590.00 to the Japanese Red Cross Society today!  This was done through Key Bank in the University District in Seattle.  The reference number is: 20110325-00006772, it was done this morning so the wire should be completed by now.  The money will be routed to the Sumimoto Mutsui Bank in NY then it goes to the Tokyo branch.  I've requested a receipt of the transfer after completion.  I think they'll email me a confirmation?  I've never done an international wire before.

I just wanted to say thank you again for everyone's contribution and the HUGE response to this raffle!   This means more than just money and provisions, we've sent them a great deal of good will and positivity too.  I really can't say enough thank you's.

In Seattle!
If you're in Seattle I highly recommend stopping by the Aritst For Japan benefit art sale at Higo.  I will be there on Sunday around 2-3pm.  I'll try to make it on Saturday too, but I'm not sure about the time. The Murakami Family (Higo Variety Store) will match up to $10,000 of the money raised by this event.
