Socks for Japan Update

It’s been a while since I’ve provided a Socks for Japan update. I’ll write one soon. We’re still on our regular schedule, and with lots of new volunteers from overseas pitching in to help these days. I’ll report more soon. In the meantime, some photos:

    Are you still accepting donations of socks?

    Jason, I hope Joe is pulling his own weight while helping you! This is something he will always remember. Thank you for giving Joe this opportunity and for all you’ve done with Socks for Japan.

      You’re most welcome, Chris! Joe is pulling more than his weight. He’s a trooper with a good heart, and we can all feel how much he cares for Japan.

      He probably already told you this, but we were able to contact the high school he attended during his home stay and arrange to distribute socks there. His former host mother came by to see him and even return some of the items he left behind. The reunion was touching to witness, and I will share the story with photos one of these days. In the meantime, know that your son is making the world a better place.

      Here he is with his host mother at Ishinomaki Technical High School on May 25:

        Thanks, Jason. Joe is my grandson and this picture brought a few tears. Glad he’s helping in your effort to make life a little more bearable in the tsunami-ravaged areas. We’re proud of him.

    Looks like you’re all socked out!!! So many boxes, ready to bring joy to many.
    I am so happy to see my box there too…Thankyou Socks Japan for doing what I can’t-physically reaching out to those in need.
