IF THIS IS MONDAY, ER TUESDAY, I MUST BE WRITING ABOUT JAPAN

22 Mar

Esprit Travel and Tours has arranged for the evacuation center at a Japanese town called Morioka to receive small toys for children. It was arranged by Sakurada-san a tour guide who now works in the relocation program.

The Japanese government and relief agencies provide food, clothing, shelter and education. Toys are further down on the list,

So Steve Biemel has come up with the idea of a Toynami. See here for the specifics, for e.g. the toys need to be small.

Have your best day ever.

    I was thinking about Japan today and then your posts came to mind. I knew that stopping by here I’d read something about the relief effort!

    I think this is a wonderful idea. We’ve been collecting a lot of things for the relief agency that I’m volunteering for but they ask that people do not donate toys and used clothes. I feel that there are so many people who would take whatever is offered in this time of need that they won’t be picky with the things they receive.

    Toys would be such a great thing for kids to get at this time because so many of them are suffering from the loss of family members and of their homes. The trauma they are going through must be horrible. I think that small toys will at least bring some joy to them while they are recovering from this horrible disaster. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful link!
