Click the link below for first hand remarks of life in Japan from a friend of mine who’s there now:
Seriously. If you didn’t already. Read it.
In semi broken English she says it better than any news reporter I’ve heard yet.
“…over 15.000 are died or missing, 390.000 are in the shelters, 1 million houses have no water. Nothing is enough for their lives. Phone line, doctors and medications, clothes, food and water, toilet, electricity, batteries, TVs and radios…”
I have to help. I can’t not any more. Not being a nuclear scientist or trained relief effort, I’m going to do what I do best.
Please join me for a charity group training at Kapiolani Park (near the fitness area on Kalakaua) on Saturday, March 26th at 9am to benefit the Red Cross Japanese Earthquake/Pacific Tsunami relief fund.
I want you to come. I want you to bring 5 of your closest friends and colleagues. I want you to tell your neighbors, office mates, dorm mates, in-laws, uncles and aunties. I want there to be so many people that your weekly Zumba class starts to look lonely. Let’s pack them in and raise as much money as humanly possible.
If you’ve worked out with me, you know what to expect. If you haven’t, get ready to work your ass off and have a ton of fun doing it. Kettlebells, sandbags, ropes, TRX, I pull out pretty much all the stops to give you the best possible for an hour.
SUGGESTED donation for class is $20. If you can’t afford that, give what you can. If you can give more, give $30, $50, $100,
whatever. Here the important part: Make checks payable to Red Cross Japan Earthquake & Pacific Sunami. Not to me. Not to MOVE, but directly to the Red Cross.
If you can’t come to class, give anyway. The Red Cross donations page can be found here.
Or, if you’d prefer, I still have 2 auction items up on the Red Cross Hawai’i chapter’s spring fundraiser. You can even get something tangible in return for your donation. Want some kettlebells like the ones we use in class? Bid! That auction can be found by clicking here.
