March 11 marks the 3-year anniversary of the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami.

While this event may seem long past for many of us, it continues to impact the lives of those affected. People have found a way to move forward, but are still seeking the means to rebuild better and stronger than before.

At our Japan Regional Office (MakiBiz) in Ishinomaki, we have collaborated with local professionals to integrate construction services with business support in aiding those in Ishinomaki and beyond. In the past three years, we have completed 14 architectural projects (with 6 more to be completed in 2014), have participated in various speaking engagements, have hosted 5 business seminar series, have provided business support to numerous business owners, and much more.

This would not have been possible without your support. Thank you!

To commemorate this event and to ensure that Tohoku continues to receive the support they need, we are participating in a Japan Matching campaign that GlobalGiving is hosting, where all donations to our program through this link (up to $1,000 per person) will be matched 100% (doubled) until matching funds run out! The campaign begins on March 11 at 00:00 JST (March 10, 2014 11:00 a.m. EDT).

Every donation counts! Please consider contributing at this time and help us spread the word! You can find more information about this matching campaign on GlobalGiving.

We look forward to continuing our work with Tohoku communities and thank you in advance.
