Mighty Harajuku, L.A. Loves You!

Bubble Punch is proud to announce that MIGHTY HARAJUKU is coming to Los Angeles this weekend April 16 – 17, 2011!!

Japan has seen more than it’s fair share of tragedies lately. It’s definitely hit close to home for us here at Bubble Punch. This tragedy has effected many of our friends here, in Japan, and internationally. It was one of the driving forces in helping Sweet Streets and JapanLA with the #PrayForJapan charity art show last month.

Even recently, North East Japan was again rocked with a massive earthquake, following last month’s magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami. It further displaced and devastated the North East coast of Japan.

So what IS the  MIGHTY HARAJUKU PROJECT?:

If you’ve ever seen the street style that has come out of Japan, then you have probably heard of Harajuku.

Mighty Harajuku was an inspirational idea born from 6%DokiDoki designer, Sebastian Masuda.

It is a call to the free-thinking youth of Japan, and the world, to come together and gather necessities for North East Japan. This effort is supported with the core idea of giving Japan it’s much-needed emotional support.

Though North East Japan has been physically devastated, it’s safe to say that all of Japan, if not those of us who have been inspired by Japan (especially Harajuku fashion), have been wounded by these tragedies. Mighty Harajuku carries the idea that this tragedy, that in every neighborhood: they are not defeated, they don’t have to go through it alone, and that they are not going to let this tragedy put a momentary halt on their lives or self-expression.

6%DokiDoki is making a pit-stop in Los Angeles this weekend, with a charity event, and parade to raise awareness and funds. All of the funds raised will be donated to the Earthquake Disaster Relief Fund at the Japanese Consulate in Los Angeles.

Space15Twenty is selling $5.00 MIGHTY HARAJUKU PROJECT charity buttons April 13, 2011. All proceeds will be donated to Japan Red Cross.

On Sunday, April 17, 2011, Bubble Punch will be helping 6%DokiDoki and Sweet Streets at the Space15Twenty flea market. We are accepting donated kawaii goods (in the vein of Harajuku) to be sold for charity. There will also be baked goods on sale, with proceeds going to charity.

Please come out and show your support! This is a FREE all ages event!
