Volunteer: JETwit seeks help tracking JET disaster relief efforts

I know there a slew of JETs and alums involved in a variety of volunteer efforts in Japan right now.  And I don’t have time to capture and post on JETwit about it.

For example:

  • A JET named Paul Yoo in Akita helped organize something called The Fruit Tree Project to bring fresh fruit to affected areas and posted information about that and other volunteer efforts on a website I believe he set up called volunteerAKITA.
  • Mike Maher-King (Fukui) of Smile Kids Japan has been doing all kinds of things with orphanages and delivery of supplies and connecting people and groups who are trying to help in various ways.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.  These are just two examples I happen to be aware of.

Would someone out there be interested in doing occasional posts on JETwit that simply list recent efforts, activities and updates along with links to the source of the information?  Sort of a JET Volunteer Round-up?

Familiarity using WordPress preferred but not absolutely necessary.

Contact Steven at jetwit [at] if interested.

Thanks and yoroshiku.
