The One Club & Art Directors Club Unite to Rebuild Japan

NEW YORK, NY (May 19, 2011) – In the wake of 2011’s devastating earthquake and tsunami, The One Club and the Art Directors Club, in partnership with AKQA have joined together to empower the creative community to unite in the rebuilding of Japan. The program, Creatives Unite for Japan, urges the creative community to come together to raise funds for Japan.

One hundred percent of all contributions will fund The Ashinaga Foundation. The non-profit Foundation was established in 1963, and provides aid to children who have lost their parents due to hardship, economic or natural disasters. The proceeds raised through Creatives Unite for Japan, will go to rebuild the lives of the children of Japan.

“The creative community has always had a strong connection to the design community in Japan. This is our way of helping to rebuild the future,” said Mary Warlick CEO The One Club.

“We are honored to be able to join with The One Club in helping a country we consider dear friends” said Olga Grisaitis, Executive Director of the Art Directors Club.
