Relief 2.0 - Japan Art Festival

All for one

I'm currently planning a project to bring art from the artists living in the affected areas in Japan to different parts of the world like NYC, Boston, Singapore, Taiwan and Mexico to help them sell their art and create awareness for the Relief 2.0 movement. One of the goals of this Art Festival is to change mindsets from donation based to one of conscious buying, which would give dignity to survivors who work and earn their own money and benefiting the economy in the disaster areas. I believe that this will accelerate the recovery process.

Problem Addressed

For the mothers and fathers, the poor and the children, the most important problem is feeding everyone.

The children are the first victims of malnutrition. A child underfed is more inclined to suffer from diseases and cannot study. Two children or more out of a hundred die of malnutrition, we must avoid that.

November 19-21, 2011 Mission to Haiti Report

Lalue, Port-au-Prince, kids send a message to Japan! With them Carlos Miranda Le

This mission was different than others. Our local partners informed us well in advance that they were all pretty busy the weekend of Fri. Nov. 18 - Sun. Nov. 20, but we decided to come anyway and fulfill the commitment of Port-au-Prince participating in the global celebration of TEDxYouth day. So we cleared with our local partners our intention to go forward and host a more modest event with other common friends and moved forward with the plan.
