Japanese Chamber of Commerce Foundation Partners with UNICEF for Japan Disaster Relief

The Japanese Chamber of Commerce Foundation is working together with UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) in their efforts to collect for the Japan Disaster Relief Fund. The death toll is expected to exceed 10,000 with thousands still missing. The hard-hit area does not have enough food or water and has no heat. The Chief Trade Minister of Japan warned of possible power outages, even in Tokyo. Efforts are continuing to contain the danger of the nuclear power plant in Fukushima. Many children are impacted by this disaster; they suffer from loss of shelter, supplies, and services, while others have been left as orphans. The Japanese Chamber of Commerce of Southern California (JCCSC) will accept donations on behalf of UNICEF until the end of April 2011 and then present all donations to the UNICEF Los Angeles Office. Please make check payable to “U.S. Fund for UNICEF” with the note “Japan Disaster Fund” on it. The check should be sent to: 244 S. San Pedro St #504, Los Angeles, CA 90012. Your donation will be tax exempted. Please use your cancelled check as evidence for tax purposes. (via Toshio Handa, President of JCCSC)

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank. http://www.jozjozjoz.com
