Avril Lavigne’s Working for the Kids!
Show your love for Japan, buy a tee and help the Comfort for Kids program.
Spread the love. Avril Lavigne is raising support for the recovery of Japan’s children after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami by selling “Abbey Dawn ♥ Japan” T-shirts from her Abbey Dawn line of clothing.
The T-shirts sell for $25, with 100 percent of the net proceeds going to The Avril Lavigne Foundation. It raises awareness and support for youth living with serious illnesses and disabilities and supports Mercy Corps’ “Comfort for Kids” program in Japan. Mercy Corps is also in partnership with Peace Winds.
“Comfort for Kids trains caregivers to help children through the trauma of disaster,” Avril said in a message. “The goal is to bring help and hope to the children and youth of Japan who have been affected by this disaster.”
It’s never too late to help. To purchase your own T-shirt and support the relief efforts in Japan, visit the Abbey Dawn site.
