SOLANGE AND SON TEAM UP FOR JAPANESE RELIEF EFFORT
Singer Solange Knowles and her six-year-old son Julez have teamed up to raise money for victims of the earthquake and tsunami devastation in Japan. The duo were inspired to donate to the Japanese relief effort after watching the devastation of the earthquake unfold on television.
She tells Wenn, “Me and my son, we are on the west coast still, we woke up on the morning of the earthquake and tsunami, at around six o’ clock that morning, and were watching it on television. He was very affected by it and asked a lot of questions and we decided we wanted to do something together to help. So we actually are in the process, we’re almost done… He did a watercolor of the Japanese flag and we’re making shirts and totes [bags] and note cards and we’re gonna sell them locally here and donate the proceeds. We’re really excited about it.”
So far, the mom and son duo have sold a few tshirts, which they will donate to Peace Winds.org
