Be a Friend to the victims of Tohoku

Suit your iPhone up for a good cause

It's hard to believe it's almost been two years since disaster struck the people of Tohoku and surrounding regions. Many survivors are still attempting to try to piece their lives back together. Japanese mobile phone company, Softbank has teamed up with five very talented artists to release custom iPhone5 cases, as part of their Softbank SELECTION line.

The series entitled, Heart of the Artist features work from Shigeru Izumiya, Satoshi Yoshida, Katsuya Tareda, Nizo Yamamamoto, and Naoki Urasawa. A portion of the 3150 sale price will be donated to the charity, Manaberu Kikin, a venture to help give scholarships to effected high school students. Suddenly my iPhone feels naked, and feels like it needs some Urasawa action!
