Please allow me to express my heartfelt sympathy to those affected by this unfortunate disaster. My thoughts and sympathies are with you.
General Incorporated Foundation mudef has started a fund-raising program to collect relief money for the Great Tohoku Earthquake. I have joined this program and made a donation through mudef.
I believe that to support one another shall become the powerful driving force to overcome the terrible loss caused by the catastrophe together.
In this very moment, there is something we can do:
to use less electricity; to refrain from purchasing fuel; to stay calm; and to support one another. I think making a donation for the relief money is among those actions we can take.
We are facing such a tough situation, but let us have hope!
Please join me in making a donation.
