Lenterns of Hope

March 11, 2011 was an unforgettable day that will be spoken of in Japan for hundreds, even thousands of years to come. The effects and shocking images of this unprecedented disaster shocked the world. They also served as proof that the human race is losing its ability to survive in the face of natural dangers. Amidst this blank state full of powerlessness, we asked ourselves what we could do now to help. This in turn made us think of what creativity could do.

No one can say for certain just how much power creativity has to change the world or help us in such times of calamity. Still, we all know that sometimes all it takes rekindle the courage and hope to keep on living is a single word or image. In these days of anxiety and uncertainty, the victims and the rest of us in Japan are all wishing for something to light a small lantern of hope in our hearts.
Countless creators have gone beyond nationality and profession to send thoughtful works of art and earnest messages to their beloved Japan. We will never forget just how much love the creators of the world have shown our nation.

Recovery from the devastation seems as distant as the goal in a marathon, and long, difficult internal struggle continues. It is our music, our photos, our designs that soothe our weary hearts and revive the hope that a better tomorrow will arrive. This is the original power of creativity. For this reason we pledge to work alongside everyone to push forward with this project, step by step, and wish that the words and designs of these creators grant courage and hope to all the victims of the disaster, the Japanese, and everyone around the world.
