NOLA Fashion Week benefits The Red Thread / Japan

For those of you familiar with events in New Orleans, The Red Thread Promise has been named the beneficiary for NOLA Fashion Week!

$1 of every ticket sold to NOLA Fashion Week events will be donated to The Red Thread Promise for Japan Quake/Tsunami relief to directly help those communities devastated by the earthquake and resulting tsunami.

The Red Thread Promise is accepting donations on behalf of the Association for Aid & Relief, Japan (AAR Japan), an organization it has worked with since the earthquake in Haiti. Both organizations were instrumental in re-opening and supplying needed items to St. Vincent's Center for Handicapped Children in Haiti. AAR Japan has also donated millions to various other projects throughout Port-au-Prince. They did so in a respectful responsible way, using Haitian materials which had the added benefit of helping to rebuild the economy.
