Keith Richards “Japan Aid T-Shirt” Update.
Sales Of Keith Richards Shirts Raise 138K For Japan
It looks like Keith Richards isn't forgetting about the devastation in Japan. The Rolling Stones guitarist says on his website that money raised by the sale of a T-shirt he created is on its way to relief efforts in the disaster-ravaged country. Keith says his fans from 35 countries bought more than five-thousand limited edition shirts featuring his image for the fundraising effort. Sales of the shirts now have reached 138-thousand U.S. dollars with 100-percent of proceeds going to the Japan Society's Earthquake Relief
Fund. Richards designed the shirt using a photo taken of him on stage in Japan during the Stones' "Steel Wheels" tour in 1990.
Keith's also encouraging fans to donate directly to the Japan Society's Earthquake Relief Fund. That charity's URL is JapanSociety.org/earthquake.
