Why it matters
In the current financial and social crisis where people are carefully selecting how they spend their money, this can be a way of starting or expanding a business.

When conceived, these Lomography cameras were meant to commemorate Japan's Golden Week, a time for celebrating Japanese culture and taking a well-earned rest from work. Now, the cameras have taken on a whole new meaning; they have become a way to help a community with a lot of work ahead of them. With the purchase of this camera you contribute to the donation of EUR 20,000 to the Red Cross Relief Japan.
