If you read and followed my blog for the two years that I lived in Japan, you might realize that the affected areas was exactly where I lived. The days following the earthquake and tsunami have been heartwrenching for me. It took many days of worrying sick until some information started floating through the internet that some of my friends are okay. I am only now starting to receive first hand emails from my friends. But, what do you say to someone who tells you that both of their parents died, or their entire home that their family has owned for hundreds of years was washed away, or that many of their friends died? What do you say back?
I am asking you to please consider donating. At this time, I can only make referrals to donate to larger organizations. However, if you'd like to wait, I'm trying to determine how I can donate directly to Ishinomaki.
