Yet Another Way to support Origami Caravan

If buying Origami Art isn’t your thing, then you could of course always donate to the project directly via PayPal – there’s a link in the sidebar at right.

Or, if t-shirts and other cool stuff are more your style, we’ve created a storefront over at Zazzle with a variety of products featuring the Origami Caravan logo artwork (visible in the site banner at the top of all our pages.)

Here’s the direct link:


Second auction – “Rose” by Toshikazu Kawasaki

Prof. Kawasaki’s famous “Rose” is now live on eBay:

Good luck, bidders!

Welcome to Origami Caravan, a volunteer project supporting Japanese children affected by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.  (Read more about the project here.)

During this year’s World Origami Days celebration, from 24 Oct. to 11 Nov., we will be auctioning off original origami artwork (via eBay), donated by the artists themselves, in support of the project. Most auctions will last just one day, so don’t miss out!

And if you don’t want to bid, you can always contribute directly to the project via a direct donation – use the “Pay Now” button, right, to donate with PayPal.  We’ll also be selling Origami Caravan t-shirts and similar merchandise; we’ll post when the storefront is ready.
