Best Intentions

“What can I do to help? What do you need?” are the two most frequent questions I hear, several times a day. And not just from people in Japan. We have been inundated with offers of help from as far away as Germany and Africa. We fully appreciate this desire to help, especially in a crisis of this magnitude. It represents one of the best aspects of humanity—that we are willing to make sacrifices for people we probably will never meet. It does give us hope.
