Mar 31, 2011 - Public Event in Tokyo on April 3 - Volunteers for Earthquake Relief
The recent devastation of the earthquake in the Tohoku area has left many in the international community feeling uncertain and helpless about what to do.

Peace Boat would like to offer the international community an opportunity to learn about daily and weekly volunteer work with Peace Boat in Tokyo and in the Tohoku area, and also brainstorm about long-term fundraising efforts for the people of Tohoku.

This English-language event is to take place from 7pm to 9pm on Sunday, April 3 at Ulala Café (reasonably priced hot and cold drinks, snacks and light meals), near Shibakouen Station in Tokyo and will include the following:

*An account of a volunteer's experience in Ishinomaki with Peace Boat
*Recent video footage and photos of the first volunteer group in Ishinomaki
*A brief talk on volunteer work in Tokyo with Peace Boat
*An idea-generating session for fundraising in Japan and abroad.
