Help the Save Minamisoma Project

Here's another charity that surely needs your help. It's called the Save Minamisoma Project.


The guy who is leading the charge is named Michael Anop and I can vouch for him as being a great guy and wonderful humanitarian.


Here's what Michael wrote about this event:


We're having a charity event for Minamisoma, please come help us support Minamisoma! For friends unable to make the event or outside Japan, we are accepting donations by credit card with 97.5% of proceeds going directly to the purchase of fresh vegetables. Y600,000 allows us to deliver 4 tons of fresh veggies. Together with Second Harvest we can deliver 10 tons+ of supplies.


If you want to support these great folks, please come to their party on July 6th in Roppongi. If you can't make that, you can still make online donations here: http://www.wazoo.jp/events/open.php?eid=232#.TfmlUN3xzpE
