SAVE JAPAN FUNDRAISER
We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the entire WSOC community for their donations of money and goods for the Japanese earthquake/tsunami victims. We are especially touched by the great deal of generosity shown by those students who either donated their own money or requested monetary donations for their birthdays instead of gifts. We are very proud of being a part of this wonderful community.
During the ten days before spring break we collected a large number of lawn chairs, sleeping bags, blankets, diapers, toothpaste, and other household items from the WSOC community. WSOC Japanese mothers and other volunteers from the Center for Women and Families (CFWF) finished packing these items last Saturday. The items are scheduled to ship from the Port of Los Angeles on May 8th for Tokyo, Japan. As soon as they clear customs, they will be delivered to the affected areas through CFWF's network. Included with the shipment are the prayer flags that WSOC students prepared during Japanese class. These will be flown at one of the shelters. We are sure that the flags will provide spiritual encouragement to the displaced people.
Lastly, please be sure to come to the Japanese Tea House booth at May Faire this week. The 6th graders will sell Japanese cake and tea, and the Japanese mothers will sell hand-crafted Japanese goods as well as raffle tickets. Two items will be raffled; one is a gift certificate from Tabento? Restaurant in Costa Mesa and the other is a Japanese dinner prepared by the Japanese mothers for six lucky couples at an ocean view home in Pelican Crest. The Japanese mothers will donate all proceeds to the earthquake/tsunami victims.
We look forward to seeing you at our booth.
CALLING ALL CRAFTERS!!!
We are gauging interest and capacity in hosting our own WSOC Craft Boutique next school year. Picture an event where we invite the public to shop for our beautiful hand-made treasures, ideally during the winter holiday season. We are looking for ideas/templates that can be executed by a team of people, trained by someone with know-how in a certain craft. There is really no limit to what we can consider. Scarves, hats, purses, dolls, scrapbooks, jewelry, soap, paper crafts, candles....more! If you can teach others how to make something, or are interested in learning, please email Denise Ogawa, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do it soon, plans are being formed now.
