Our charity Sendairect was developed out of conversations really, on
We wanted to help in a smaller way. People wanted to contribute with food items and things like batteries and vitamins that very were hard to find in Sendai for the first 3 weeks and still are not plentiful! So we organized a care package delivery service "store to door" for 14 people locally. I shopped in the US and brought the items back and distributed them to people in my neighborhood.
These were not people who were in desperate need of a roof over their heads or starving, but they were and are people who had their nerves shattered by the dramatic happenings of the last month. They were hard working citizens whose lives were suddenly spun into turmoil and unease and worry.
The packages brought smiles! This was their sole purpose and the message behind each was simple :
The world is thinking of you and sending love your way.
I think that is worth a lot. And the smiles in the pics I think prove it.
