Please HELP

We have been profoundly touched by the recent devastation and series of catastrophes in Japan. We have had many wonderful students over the years from Japan and have become friends with a great many of these wonderful people. Two of those very special people are Hiroko and Isamu. Hiroko’s daughter, Miki, works for the Senator from Miyagi, where the damages have been horrific. There are 10.000 people confirmed dead, thousands still missing and over 150,000 people living in shelters.

A contact window and bank account has been set up for donations. Your donation goes directly to the office of the Governor of Miyagi prefecture and will be distributed properly.

There are two different types of donation you can make, and you will have to specify which one you would like to support.

1.      Contribution to support the daily lives of the people who had lost their houses.
2.      Donation for the resources to restore and reconstruct towns.
