Happy Asian Heritage month! This piece has been made specifically for this year's Powell Street Festival Society KANPAI Auction Fundraiser, which is happening June 15th. Even though I am not Japanese, this society is near and dear to me. The group of people who run the annual festival, celebrating Japanese culture and heritage, are so warm and lovely. They've made my past volunteer experiences so positive. The involvement and inclusion of all members of the community show a real respect for the diversity of people in Vancouver, particularly in the Downtown Eastside. Please support one of Vancouver's most awesome free festivals by picking up a ticket for the auction. There are lots of super nice items to bid on.
