We all remember the devastating 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The tsunami created over 300,000 refugees in the Tohoku region. Many people died during the evacuations and later in the shelters due to a lack of food, water, medicine and fuel. Now, many Japanese individuals and families are still left displaced by the disaster and they are in great need of support and proper housing. I pledged to donate 10% of my profit from the sales of my paperback Tokyo Hearts: A Japanese Love Story in 2012/13 to the Japan Society Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund.
I’ve just agreed with the support from the Japan Society of the UK to continue to donate 10% of my profit from the sales of my paperback Tokyo Hearts: A Japanese Love Story until December 2014. The book is available on Amazon and from more than 60 other retailers.
