CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) – Students from Rutgers University are holding a special art sale tonight in old city to raise funds for the victims of Japan’s disasters.

The Rutgers-Camden graduates have spent enough time in Japan, studying art and culture and the language, that they consider it a second home. So now they are using art to raise money for the Japanese Red Cross.

“Not just donating art and money to the cause, it’s more like donating our hearts and our time to just show support for Japan,” Matt Robinson says. “I think that’s the important message we’re trying to send.”

Amanda Squillace says the art is from local artists, Rutgers students and local children.

“And I have a five-year-old daughter and for me, it’s important for her to display her humanity and get these experiences of helping people.”

Photos, painting, drawings and sculptures will be on sale from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 144 North Second Street in Old City.
