As I've watched in disbelief the videos of the recent tsunami in Japan, I have wondered what I can do to help. Cars, boats, homes--all the worldly possessions of thousands of residents of the Tohoku region--seemed like toys in a bathtub or wading pool ... except that they were real.
Charles T. Whipple (a resident of Japan) contacted me this morning, offering to contribute the proceeds of his book A Matter of Tea to the tsunami victims. Please visit his blog and participate if you are able.
We extend our hopes and best wishes to the tsunami victims, and pray for their quick recovery.
