FUNDRAISER EVENT THIS WEDNESDAY!!
I received this email from the BC Japan Earthquake Relief Fund coordinator....
"At this moment, several students from Sendai,
Japan are staying in Vancouver,
and they would like to share their earthquake/tsunami
stories with as well as say thanks for supporting
Tohoku to Vancouverites. They are planning to do street donations, so it would be great if you could
help do street donations together with them and
share your stories with them! Please see below for the detail." Date: Wednesday August 31 from 6pm to 8pm
(they will be there from 5pm though) Location: Granville and Georgia St.
in Vancouver Downtown, just outside of the City Centre Station.
So this Wednesday will be a great opportunity to come show your continued support!
It is a chance to meet the students from Sendai, a city that was heavily damaged by the
March 11th disaster. I am so excited to participate because I was in Sendai this summer
where I met with the Teachers For Japan group. If you're reading this now, please take a second to remember that although
the newspapers and T.V. coverages have moved on, there are many
towns and cities and people's lives that are still on the road to recovery.
It's so easy to forget when we live in such a fortunate place like Vancouver
so Wednesday will be a great day to take a brief moment
to remember the people in Japan! so please come down and show your support!!
