The goal is to raise money and focus it on one local recovery project. I currently have not decided where I will send the money, but I am thinking about trying to put it towards a damaged high school school in either Iwate or Miyagi prefecture. I feel that by focusing the money into one single project, it will have more of an impact.
A little bit about myself:
I am a 20 year old university student from California. Over the past 3 years, I have studied Japanese and done a lot of work making connections in Japan. In all honesty, I have very few connections in the areas affected, however I am going to start working very hard on connecting with someone in one of the affected areas to help with the recovery.
