Street Fundraiser with students from Sendai

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!!

First Donation to TFJ!

Elementary school kids from Kesennuma, Miyagi.
Thanks to everyone who came out to BLVD22 to support the fundraiser event for Teachers For Japan!! It was a little last minute but we managed to get $150 in ticket sales/donations from one night! All $150 has already been donated via paypal on their website: Teachers For Japan ! The donations will be used to buy school supplies for the children of Miyagi Prefecture who are still suffering from the devastation of the March 11th tsunami. Many kids are currently living in government housing units built on school fields and have lost everything. But thanks to Teachers For Japan, some kids were given school supplies, backpacks, and school uniforms and are currently attending school once again!

Your support is very important so please take a look at their website if you haven't already!
