Overview of the Earthquake

  • On 3.11.2011 an insurmountable earthquake of magnitude 9.0 hits the northeast shore of Japan.
  • The fourth largest earthquake in the world, the largest one yet in Japan.
  • The earthquake was followed by a tsunami, hundreds of aftershocks, and a nuclear crisis at hand due to damaged nuclear reactors in Fukushima.
  • The death-count and number of people missing exceeds 27,000.
  • Damage estimates up to $309 billion, the largest ever caused by a natural disaster.

We would like to express our deepest condolences to those who have been taken by this disaster. We hope that those who survived will be strong enough to carry on with the reconstruction of Japan. In this time of need, we established Art Drive Japan to stand by these people to help restore their well-being and their communities.

What is Art Drive Japan charity art auction?

Art Drive Japan is an online auction of work donated by artists from around the world, joining hands to contribute to the relief and recovery efforts in Japan. By purchasing our creations, you are joining us and many others in our cause.

Art Drive Japan was established to encourage continued support for the earthquake-tsunami victims. The funds raised will help the physical recovery over the coming months and years. In addition, your participation will send a very positive message to the people of Japan, letting them know that the world continues to cheer for them.

100% of the proceeds (final sales minus transaction fees) will be donated to the Japan NGO Earthquake Relief and Recovery Fund administered by JCIE Japan Center for International Exchange (JCIE/USA) to help Japan recover from the catastrophic earthquake that took place on March 11, 2011.
