Quilts for Japan

Here is a re-post of a direct call for help for Japan - you can find the original post HERE.

Call for Quilts for Japan

My friend, Valerie Hearder, received this note from Naomi Ichikawa, Editor of Patchwork Tshushin, this morning (3/17/11):
Dear Quilters: It is still bad situation now in Japan. We are still nervous about shaking and radiation, but no way to escape. I start to announce to the quilters to send us comfort quilts for the people who are suffered. I would like to [ask] the world quilters. We will deliver the comfort quilts to the people who are very difficult situation. Could you please help to announce it to the quilters? We accept any size of quilts (baby to adult), new or unused.
After the end of April,please send the quilts to:
Naomi Ichikawa, Editor
Patchwork Tsushin Co., Ltd.,
2-21-2, Yushima, Bunkyo-ku
Tokyo, JAPAN 113-0034
I will appreciate if you help me. Nao
Note from Patricia Cummings:
When mailing any quilts, it is important to NOT write the word “Quilt” anywhere on the outside of the package, if you want a better chance of it reaching its destination.
As you know, quilters always step up to the plate when there is a critical need for “comfort quilts” such as those being requested in the letter. I am re-posting this note, so that you will have addresses in Japan to send quilts. As she said, any size is acceptable and they can be for babies or adults. Please help, if you can. If you can’t make a quilt, please help spread the word by re-posting this note to your guild or group page or Facebook page.

Also saw this during my blog surfing - an easy project to help!
