The craft community are pulling together to help Japan through these heart-breaking times. Here are some ways you can help with your crafty hands:

An online auction raising money from sales of unique, handmade art donated by concerned, invited artists. More info on Twitter.
A mission for Japan - Knit a Square
Amii of Natty Knits & Other Stuff is collecting squares to make up blankets to send to Japan. More info on the Facebook group.
Yummy Bento Craft
Search for Bento4Japan on eBay for books and Bento boxes being sold with all profits going to Globalgiving's Japan relief effort.
Etsy Charity Donations
Etsy has a list of sellers donating profits from sales of their items to Japan Earthquake Relief.
Ravelry pattern sales donations
The pattern designers over at Ravelry are donating from their sales and also from their Etsy shops. Check out the Earthquake Relief in Japan and Japan earthquake: how to help forums.
And there are loads of blog raffles and auctions from crafters all over, such as this handmade Japanese blouse from Nette and a playsuit from Molly-Made.
The lovely folks over at Craft have put together an excellent list too.
If you're not too crafty then the good people at Burdastyle have other advice on how to help.
Tweet us with links to any auctions or raffles for Japan you have. We'll pass them on.
