Water Works at GR2 - A benefit for UNICEF and child victims of the
earthquake in Japan

March 19 - April 13, 2011
Reception: Saturday, March 19, 6:30 - 10:00 p.m.

2062 Sawtelle Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90025
(310) 445-9276

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF (USF) is raising funds to help
children in Japan impacted by the March 11 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. Giant Robot is 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.

In addition to raising money by selling artwork, Giant Robot will 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, horseback rides, and other items.
5. Cash donations accepted for UNICEF.
