A walk across the Canadian Rockies to maintain awareness for Tohoku situation

Posted by Alisa Wylie to the Japan Earthquake Disaster Relief Idea Exchange group on Facebook (started by Atlanta-based JET alum Emily Duncan):

Steve Johnson is a friend of a friend who returned to Canada from Japan last year. He’s walking across the Canadian Rockies to raise/maintain awareness of the situation in Tohoku.

Steve also says: “I have prepared a presentation and talk that aims to share my experience in the endlessly fascinating Japanese culture and thereby connect Canadians to this event. Furthermore, I hope to encourage people to develop their natural feeling of connectedness to current events and to take action when they feel passionate about an issue, whether it be global or local.”

The blog includes a list of charities and disaster relief projects where people can send donations if they wish. Please share this info with anyone who might be interested or even be able to help reduce their expenses!
