Water Works
Fundraiser for the Devastation in Japan

March 19 - April 13

Reception: This Saturday, March 19th, 6:30-10pm

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF (USF) is raising funds to help children in Japan impacted by the March 11th earthquake and tsunami. This is an unusual decision, as Japan is a donor to UNICEF, not a recipient of its assistance. However, due to the unprecedented nature of the epic disaster and its impact on children, resources are going to be critical in helping provide for the very unique needs of children. These may include health, development, and protection and other needs that may have been compromised or disrupted in the wake of the catastrophe. We're proud to join the effort, and have asked many of our talented friends to create water-themed art to raise funds to support the efforts of UNICEF.

Giant Robot will also be donating the following to UNICEF:
1. Proceeds from the sale of water bottles featuring labels created by artists and signed by celebrities.
2. Fifty percent of proceeds from Giant Robot’s small restaurant, gr/eats, on Saturday, March 19.
3. A percentage of all sales at Giant Robot, GR2, and GRSF during the weekend of March 18-20.
4. Raffles for donated merchandise including designer- and artist-signed items, GR gear, and more.
5. Cash donations accepted for UNICEF.
Intertrend Communications has pledged to match the first $10,000 raised by proceeds and donations through Giant Robot. For more information on the Water Works fundraiser and exhibition, go to the GR2 website here.
