Two Years Later: Thank you for sticking with Tohoku
Two years ago this month, the world watched as northeastern Japan was
submerged beneath the brutal forces of nature. Immediately, hundreds of
people reached out to the affected people of the Tohoku region in
partnership with Give2Asia and our local partners in Japan with over $8 million to support immediate relief, economic revitalization, and much more.
Give2Asia, our local partners and the people of Tohoku thank everyone who supported the region's recovery. You can learn more about Give2Asia's recovery efforts and each project we supported at http://give2asia.org/japantsunami-2011.
