It’s great to see people haven’t forgotten about those in Japan who still need help to recover from the earthquake and tsunami which hit earlier this month.
And this time around it’s Keith Richards who’s lending a helping hand.
The Rolling Stones star has designed a special t-shirt to help raise funds for the relief efforts.
On the shirt is a special photograph taken back in 1990 during the band’s world tour in Japan. His website even posted a special message asking for donors:
“For decades, Japanese fans have been some of the most passionate supporters of rock and roll. Now they need our help.
The Japan Relief t-shirt is based on a photo taken by Claude Gassian on the Japanese leg of the Steel Wheels tour in 1990 and is available in both classic and fitted styles.
Keith will be sending 100% of the profits from the shirt's sales to the Japan Society's Japan Earthquake Relief Fund. Let's come together now to get our brothers and sisters through this difficult time and help them rebuild as soon as possible.”
The shirt retails for $29.99 with all of the profits going to help the Japan Society's Earthquake Relief Fund.
