東北地方太平洋沖地震遭難者の皆のための資金調達大会

東北地方太平洋沖地震遭難者の皆のための資金調達大会

僕の友達のかず子さんの、お家が地震で半壊した。古い家の半壊は、修理のほどこしようもなく結局は壊さなきゃだめなんだって。地震後、二日目にやっと連絡がとれたときに、“生きているだけで、ほんとにありがたい”、といってました。電子メールでやり取りしている最中にも、余震がきて、”こわ〜い”、といってました。海の向こうにいるぼくは、なにもできないのが、はがゆい。と、それで、彼女のために、資金調達大会をやりたいです。2001年、ニューヨークの9/11のときにも、ぼくは、やりまして、少しでも、役に立てた自分がうれしかったです。明日の12時30分から、第一回の打ち合わせを、おこないますので、きてください。ガズコがんぱれ〜 (ここはなに?)

A fundraising for Japan Earthquake Survivors….

Well, it’s more specific than that.  I have a friend who lost her house.  I was able to speak with her after two days of not be able to contact her, she said she was simply grateful that she was alive, and she had electricity.  When we were emailing back and forth about an hour or so, we experience aftershock twice!!  All she could say was, “Noooooooooo”.

I got together with Santa Barbara Middle School Resident Artist Richard Wilke, and we decided to have a fundraising for my friend Kazuko.  Why?  Because I just cannot not do anything.  I did a similar fundraising for 9/11 back in 2001, worked with Red Cross then.  This time it’s more personal, and I know exactly where the money go, but I need your help.  I need all of your help.

Tomorrow afternoon is our 1st meeting, we will lay down overall format of the fundraising, sponsors, venue, length and detailing the details.  If you are interested, I will forward our progress note to keep you informed.  Please join us for your lunch break.  Japanese green tea provided :)
