We are raising money for our dearest brother, friend and teacher Kan-san, who lives in Japan. In the aftermath of Japan\'s devastating earthquake, Kan\'s hometown was directly hit by the Tsunami and the whole town was swept away. His parents and many friends are still missing. Kan- san continues to embody grace, kindness, love, and compassion even in the face of extreme distress, suffering, and personal tragedy, as he is presently spending time in Iwate, Japan, assisting, comforting, and encouraging the people. In a personal statement released Saturday, March 12, 2011, Kan wrote, \"Now I am devoting all of my life, all of my energy to our mother Earth (kanportal.com).\"
The money is being raised with the intention to help Kan-san find his missing family. You can imagine how much time, energy, and financial resources it will take for him to search for and locate his family members. We would also like to assist him in helping his community, those in need, and with his mission to help Mother Earth.
You can also help by keeping our brothers and sisters of Japan in your thoughts and prayers and by sending love and compassion from your heart.
Thank you for your generosity and continuous love and support to this worthy cause.
