Magenta Rubber Stamps has had a warm and enduring relationship with several Japanese women over the years, with one in particular being close to the hearts of the staff at Magenta. Etsumi Ogino is a certified instructor for Magenta in Japan, and now she is running a shelter for animals rescued from the Fukushima nuclear plant area, animals that were sadly left behind by owners when they were told to immediately evacuate the zone at risk.
The funds raised wlll help provide food, veterinary services, and other care for the animals. Undoubtedly, many of you saw the images of the abandoned animals and the rescue efforts on CNN (Anderson Cooper 360). If it were not for Etsumi and her colleagues from the Sora Peace Project, many animals would not have been rescued.
Magenta alone cannot make a big difference but with the help of fellow artisans all over we might together be able to really make a difference. Bello Modo wants to join with Magenta in offering the limited edition commemorative dog and cat stamps and a portion of the price will be donated by Magenta to this worthy cause. We are offering these stamps as a special order, with free shipping, as usual. See our listing HERE.
