THE STORY:

To All My Friends,

I have been living in the States but on the Friday afternoon of March 11th, 2011, as a lot of you know, I was back home in Japan with my family when suddenly everything started shaking.  It seemed have gone on forever.

Thank you for all you messages…. My family and I are fine.  I was really touched by your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks to the distance from the epicenter, I was able to watch the news in a warm unharmed house with my family but devastated to see the power of Tsunami, washed away cities, grieving survivors for their loved ones, their houses, the cities they grew up in.

I know so many of you have already donated to the Red Cross and/or other charities this past 2 weeks but I cannot not do nothing as I lived through the tail end of that shake and think about the people who have experienced 1000 times stronger one.  There are still many aftershocks, which I had a few at home and at the airport.

The number of death and missing is rising (27,000 as of March 26, 2011) and the survivors barely making each day in the bitter cold weather with so much grief, the lack of food, water, medical care, and basic necessity, anxiety for tomorrow, and radiation scare. 

I need your help!

Please help me raise money to help them recover from this overwhelming devastation.  Anything would be deeply appreciated.

If you can join me in this project, I would be so very much grateful!

I set up this online donation to Japan Society which will donate 100% of contribution to organization in Japan.  Please go to the address below for more information.

If you handed me the checks and cash, I will take great responsibility and take them to the Consulate of Japan who will directly donate to the Japanese Red Cross which will use 100 % of your donation to the relief of Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami victims.

For your pledge, I challenge to take yoga classes everyday for 30 days starting today, March 26th.

Thank you very much for reading this far and thank you for your help.

Kyoko
