I think most people are aware of the situation in Japan. I just wanted to bring this charity to Australian reader’s attention in case they can help at all.

Red Cross Chopstick Poster

Help Heal Japan is a simple little idea to help raise funds for Japan: Get patrons at Japanese restaurants to donate $2 for chopsticks, which of course is normally free.

BMF ad agency took the idea up and within a week we launched the ‘Help Heal Japan’ campaign.

So far we have over 100 Japanese restaurants on board, in 5 states (NSW, ACT, VIC, QLD, WA) with more to come!

Please check out our Facebook page which has all the information, including the growing list of restaurants.


All proceeds go to the Australian Red Cross – Japan and Asia Pacific Disaster Appeal.

I’ve eaten at a lot of the restaurants participating and you’ve probably seen some of them mentioned on this blog before. If you have the means to help, please check the page out.
