So far Help Japan 2011 has raised nearly $600 in donations through Palpal! Most of the donors are in America. One is in Australia, only in the UK, and one in Tokyo.
A family I have known through the years in Sendai report that they have electricity again, but still no kerosene to keep their house warm. As I write this post, it’s 5 degrees Celsius or 41 degrees Fahrenheit outside in Sendai. They are dressed as warmly as possible wearing winter coats in the house. I am hoping on making a trip to Sendai soon with friends to take them supplies. We will bring as much kerosene as possible.
