This charity event is to commemorate the North-Eastern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster that happened on March 11, 2011. We wish to support the affected to make their living better, rebuild the area, and for each of us to remember the tragedy.
The major part of the areas where struck by the earthquake and Tsunami started to recover and rebuild, but is still suffering from the long-existing damages. Even with all the donations and funds collected by countless organizations and groups all over the world, they are still experiencing difficulties recovering from the destructions. Through The Japanese Disaster Relief Fund – Boston (JDRFB), we hope to become a part to help Japan recover from the affects.
We believe that we all learned something important from this incident that we should never overlook in the future. Please take this opportunity to remember them.
"Peacefulness through a Bowl of Tea" is phrased by Sen Genshitsu, the Great Grandmaster of Urasenke Japanese Tea Ceremony. He has always been flying around the world to spread the Japanese Tea Ceremony along with the peacefullness to us. We, as a part of Urasenke school, follow his expression in the US as well.
Please visit our website. Informations and poster will be posted promptly.
