Actually Do Stuff For Japan
Don’t pray for the place, If there was a god he wouldn’t have sent this fuck-off big wave to destroy tens of thousands of lives in the first place. Get real.
As Dave Gutteridge , a comedian from Canada, has written on his hard hat above, help Japan in ways that are concrete and make a dent in the slow, slow path back to recovery the Tohoku coast is beginning to take as we speak. People can’t eat scriptures.
Dave is a man of his word for sure, I talked and photographed him and his Hockey team members as they were shovelling mud; moving debris and generally making a small but significant difference to the town of Ishinomaki while volunteering with the Peace Boat.
Inspired by the 350 or so people I met on the Golden week mission up there, great people actually doing stuff for Japan.
