News From Japan

by 

Shortly after the horrific earthquake in Japan, Thomas Pryzbilka received the following e-mail before the full extent of the disaster was known, from AIEP's good friends in Japan, Ken and Harue Matsuzaka:

Dear Thomas,

We, my wife and I, are very well.Thanks for your awareness.
But I'm anxious about the status of my Library (apart from my residence).
Later I am going to examine the situation.
At least I am not dead under the pile of books !!

Ken and Harue

All of Ken and Harue's friends are relieved to hear this, but AIEP members must be horrified at the growing enormity of the events in that country.

Tony Fenelly asked where donations can be sent. The following Yahoo! site has links to many agencies which can help: AID LIST

After this good news (amid so much ongoing horror), Tony Fenelly asked where one might donate to help alleviate the suffering. An article on Yahoo! listed a number of relief agencies that can help. Click here if you'd like to contribute.
