Minna No Ie: A Playbutton to Benefit Residents of NE Japan
I wasn’t aware of what a “Playbutton” was until very recently (its a button you wear that doubles as an mp3 player) but I still thought that this Minna No Ie (“A Home For Everyone”) benefit for residents of Northeastern Japan (one year after the Tsunami/Earthquake/Nuclear fiasco) was a good idea. So often relief aid dries up after a cause is no longer getting headlines. Plus, the Playbutton playlist that the group is offering up for sale is an interesting mix indeed, featuring the likes of the Boredoms, Jemapur and more. Get your button here today and be one of the first to sport one of these uber-hip button thingies. More information on Minna No Ie available here.
