This morning while reading one of my blogs I came across a wonderful way to share some kindness, in the form of my cards sprinkled with hope and good cheer.
Kathleen Koch, a former CNN correspondent who covered the Katrina hurricane for the network, has launched “Words of Hope for Japan” – a letter writing campaign to collect a caring letter of support for every man, woman and child in a shelter in Japan, who have been affected by the earthquake. Let us let the Japanese know that they are not forgotten, even though the newsreporting has moved on. As days turn into weeks turn into months, perhaps what the hundreds of thousands Japanese in shelters may need most is hope. The goal is to collect 150,000 letters – one for every man, woman and child in a Japanese shelter. Letters can be mailed to:
Words of Hope for Japan
P.O. Box 636
Fulton, MD 20759
All letters will be hand-delivered to the Embassy of Japan in Washington, D.C. for shipment to the shelters. Please do not enclose cash or checks. For more information, you can read about it here or contact Kathleen Koch. firstname.lastname@example.org
