A message from Tohoku to the world

Those of you who follow me on my social media accounts have seen my posts, but I want to share this with as many people as possible. It is a beautiful tribute to a friend who lost her life, and it shows the impact Assistant English Teachers have on their students. It also highlights the beauty of cross-cultural bonds and gives hope for world peace.

The video was made by Executive Director Tsutomu Karino of the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry of New York, Inc.

Tohoku has made leaps and bounds in recovering from the earthquake and tsunami, but the people still need help. Please consider purchasing a charity calendar as a holiday gift. There’s also a cookbook (Peko Peko) and a literary anthology (Fable for Japan) that will donate proceeds to relief funds. You can also spread a little holiday cheer to the kids in Tohoku by sending them Christmas cards; instructions can be found at JETAA USA.
