Kids of the world extend their love to Japan

Dear all,

Still with our minds and prayers turned to Japan, we collected some drawings from children all over the world and sent them to the Nippon Foundation. We asked them to let these pretty drawings reach the Japanese kids, a source of joy and hope for them. You can see the drawings here.

Andi also developed a world map with these drawings in a way that we could continue to publish more drawings from other parts of the globe. You can check it here.

Or simply follow the link on the right-hand menu bar entitled “Kids of the world extend their love to Japan”.

You can post new drawings, so let’s keep on asking our kids for help! The Japanese children will appreciate it!

All the best to you all!
