Japan Earthquake and Tsunami (March 2011): Food collected by Mark & Kunie Thornton have reached Miyagi Prefecture!

Mark & Kunie/邦恵 Thornton with the fishermen from Yaizu City who volunteered to carry the food to Miyagi Prefecture!

Mark and Kunie packed their car with the 12 boxes full of food before driving all the way across the Prefecture to the harbor of Yaizu City!

The tuna fishing boat that transported mark and Kunie’s donations among all the help from Shizuoka Prefecture!

The name of the boat to remember: Wakaba Maru No 5 Yaizu!
“Wakaba” is the actual name of the boat. “Maru” means “round” and “boat”. Yaizu is the calling port.

Everyday heroes brave the sea and elements (and others) to bring help!

In spite of all the hardships there are thousands (and more) people deeply aware of what’s needed in times of crisis.
It is those “little gestures” that make this world a little easier to live in!

Mark, Kunie, gals and lads and all the fishermen that braved the elements, a profound thanks to all and from all once again!

Japan Earthquake and Tsunami (March 2011): Food collected by Mark & Kunie Thornton on its way to Miyagi Prefecture!

Mark & Kunie/邦恵 Thornton!

Message from Mark and Kunie:

Dear All,

It was great to meet you all yesterday! In the end we had more than 40 people donate items, and filled 12 boxes. So we think it was a big success!

We took all the goods to Yaizu today, and went to see the ship that will take them. So looks like everything will get to the people that need it.

In spite of all the hardships there are thousands (and more) people deeply aware of what’s needed in times of crisis.
It is those “little gestures” that make this world a little easier to live in!

Mark, Kunie, gals and lads, a profound thanks to all and from all once again!
