$$$ for Japan

Flower #4 by Joey Veltkamp

Today (3/15), ALL of Linda's restaurants/bars will be donating 100% of their profits to disaster relief for Japan via International Medical Corps. THAT'S HUGE! I've never heard of a business donating 100% of their profits to a cause. So swing by Oddfellows for your morning coffee or lunch, or host a happy hour at Lindas and then have dinner at Smith or King's Hardware and know that you're helping to raise money for earthquake relief.

And then save the date for next Monday (3/21) for a fundraiser of a personal nature at Boat Street Cafe. My friend Sachie (artist/waiter/Seattle darling) is raising money for her family in Japan. They're all safe but have lost everything and need money asap. More details soon but I'm donating the above flower paintings. I'm not sure how they're doing it, but if I'm setting the price, they're gonna be cheap! So if you're looking for art or other goodies, head over to Boat Street Cafe this Monday night. And if you want to make a donation before then, email me and I can put you in touch with Sachie.

Also, artist Diem Chau is offering up a very generous custom family portrait (3 crayons). Every $10 raffle ticket enters you to win. She's hoping for 200 tickets sold but it'd be awesome to sell a lot more! All money raised goes to the Japanese Red Cross Society. More info here - you have til the 23rd to buy a ticket!
