Raise It Up: Japan

Raising Funds & Awareness for Japan
100% Proceeds to Red Cross & Global Medic


Dazzling (291 King St W)
Toronto, ON

$10 Minimum donation


In 2009, Hurricane Ketsana (Ondoy) hit The Philippines and various other countries in Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia, China, Thailand & Laos). It displaced thousands, left many dead and has cost the above countries over $250M USD in damages.

The event(s) left an impact on many people worldwide and forever changed the lives of our family & friends, both home and abroad.

I took a look at my life, the lives of my friends and realized how fortunate we are to have clean water, a roof over our head and clothes on our back. We often take these things for granted, but it reassured me that we were all in a good position. A position that allowed us to not only provide for our family and friends, but to help others when needed.

The power of prayer is incredible, but I knew that we could do more..

I knew we had no choice, but to #RaiseItUp

With the help of many generous friends who donated their time, talent and money, we were able to raise over $2,300 for The Philippines and other affected countries.


On Friday, March 11th 2011 a 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit Japan which triggered a tsunami killing thousands and causing a crisis at a local power plant.

CNN reports that the death toll is over 8, 600 and over 13, 200 are still missing. Although much is being done to find the missing and care for the injured, those numbers continue to rise.

Toronto, it is our duty as human beings to care for one another and lift each other up when we are down.

Please join us on Sunday, April 10th 2011 at 8pm as we #RaiseItUp
