I hope you had a wonderful GW holiday. As we head into summer there are so many new and exciting events!
First let me thank you all for supporting SEVEN - a play about 7 women
in 7 nations who have struggled for the rights of others. Serving as
both producer and actor was a major challenge but well worth the effort.
We raised close to 250,000yen for Resilience
a local nonprofit working on DV and abuse issues. I will be posting
more details soon on facebook and on my blog as well as the possibility
of future social justice oriented shows.
I would like to invite you to join us next week at "Knights in White Wine" on May 18. It
is sure to be a fantastic night where we will be supporting Mirai no
Mori, a local Japanese nonprofit creating life-changing outdoor programs
for abused, neglected and orphaned Japanese children. This event is
hosted by amateur cycling team, the Knights in White Lycra (KIWL). See more info about this and other amazing events below.
I have been posting information on organizations working on relief
efforts in Equador and Kumamoto and will continue to share such info on my blog and on facebook.
I am now looking into new projects to start this summer/fall; if there
is a chance we might be able to work together, send me an email!
Thank you again for sharing info and for your support of local community groups. Sarajean
