I'm a Winner in the Great Tokyo Tako Help Japan Giveaway!

Last Monday I entered a giveaway on an adorable Japanese culture blog called Tokyo Tako. I wanted to win one of the "Help Japan" buttons Allie, a lover of Tokyo and cute things from Japan, was giving away online. It was part of "The Great Tokyo Tako Help Japan Giveaway!" (Yes, I know I'm in my forties.) I mean, look at the prizes:

Well, I found out tonight that I WON! I'm truly excited. Now, I wanted the Manekineko on the top left, but I was told that I won #5. I'm not sure which one that is, but I'm assuming it's the bottom right. Which is fine because I love all of them!

I know you're jealous, but you, too, can have a button of your own. HOPE JAPAN, a non-profit group of artists, designed a bunch of pins for sale, all profits of which go to the Japan Society's Japan Earthquake Relief Fund. The buttons are only $3 each, a small price to pay to send some hope and love to Japan.
