The Heartfelt Project



Welcome to the Heartfelt Project page Рremembering the victims of the Japanese Tsunami. 

Simply send us your photograph with a red felt heart to show your ‘heartfelt’ message of support for the victims who are still living in the aftermath of the tragedy.


Cocoro Charity provides massage and support for the local people in Rikuzentakata and Ofunato city, Iwate prefecture. After the massage, people are given a red felt heart with a drop of essential oil.

As time goes by, it is easy to forget those still living with loss and tragedy but simple gestures of remembrance can make a real difference. Messages of support from around the world really help to boost morale and help give strength to continue in such difficult circumstances. The Heartfelt Project provides a simple but very important and effective way of showing your ‘heartfelt’ empathy for the local people.

  2. Cut the felt (2.5 inch square) and make a heart shape.
