Many thanks for the generous support of the Japan Relief Effort. We raised $3,791.04 for the 1st benefit in April and received thank you notes from the Consulate General of Japan.
The 2nd benefit raised $2,444 for Ookuma-town in Fukushima and was sent on July 25. Residents in Ookuma-town moved to 6 shelters and now they are going to start a new life in Aizu-Wakamatsu city. Our donation of $2,444 will help 3 families to move to a new home.
Thank you notes from the Consulate General of Japan and Mayor of Ookuma-town are up on our bulletin board in the dojo.
