Tsunami Fundraising & Japan Festival Planning

Dear Texoma,

As you have undoubtedly been watching the tragic news unfold in Japan, I hope that you’ve been able to get in touch with friends and loved ones in the affected areas.

JETAA USA Relief Fund

I know that right now we are all wondering what we can do and where we can direct donations securely.  JETAA USA has done a wonderful job of creating a relief fund (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=YBW32VZP4WLY2) and a regularly updated blog (http://www.jetaausa.com/) with information, links, and resources on how you can help.


JETAA USA Relief Fund Campaign Poll

JETAA USA is currently deciding on a national campaign that can be promoted to JET alumni across the country. They have created an online poll at TwtPoll: http://twtpoll.com/7b01z5, which does not require a login of any type. Please vote on which option you think is best, or write in another option in the “Other” section if you have a good idea.


JETAA Texoma Fundraising & Japan Festival Planning

Our local chapter will be collecting donations to bolster relief efforts as well.  Texoma officers have a Japan Festival planning meeting scheduled on Wednesday, March 23rd at 6:30pm (location TBA) where we will also be talking about Japan earthquake/tsunami fundraising ideas.  If you have ideas you would like to come and discuss, let our secretary David Park know that you’ll be joining: david.park@texomajetaa.org.


Thank you,

Texoma JETAA Officers
