Send your support to Japan

You already know that Japan is experiencing a terrible tragedy.  But did you know that there's something you can do to help?  The head of TokyoPop, a major manga publisher, is asking everyone to write letters of support to lift the spirits of the Japanese people and teenagers living in shelters.  After visiting one of the shelters he says:
So, I thought, what if I gather letters from our community and deliver those letters to them? They can't read much English but so many of you can draw beautifully as well as write poems, simple letters, and even some decorative Japanese phrases. Maybe you can include a photo of yourself and friends (cosplay!) - or something about you. Anything to let the Takasago students know that you are cheering them on - and to put a smile on their face.

Get more information on the project (they even have Japanese phrases that you can include in your letters).  Then send your letters and drawings to this address:
Students of Takasago
