URGENT – HELP US TO HELP JAPAN
The team at 7tune.com is now moving toward a relief effort for the people suffering without heat, food or water in northern Japan. Read on to find out how you can help us and keep in mind every little bit counts…
The whole world is appalled and deeply saddened by the situation being endured in northern Japan and for those of us living here it is especially difficult to watch or sit through so we have decided that instead of fleeing the country or heading south to Osaka and beyond, it is better to stand and fight for the safety of those affected and to accomplish this, we need your help. And we need it presently.
We will be traveling to Sendai, the virtual epicenter for all the chaos that followed the quake that shook Japan to pieces, to distribute aid and supplies with 7tune taking the dual role of cataloging the experience as it unfolds so you can see your care is going to those that need it most. Personally, I do expect my heart to be broken many times over in the coming days and am not looking forward to that experience very much at all but the fact remains, that this is home for all of us and I am willing to do what I can to help restore it with whatever means necessary.
Together, we have mobilized a dedicated team of people along with 9 trucks and cars to head into Sendai early this week and will be taking with us thousands of dollars in food, clothing and supplies plus nearly 5000 liters of water and 500 liters of heater fuel. We are in talks with several companies and corporations and with more backing we could easily achieve more.
At the very least we want to double up our efforts each time we head in. The more impact we have in making peoples lives easier, the faster we can recover from this mess.
Thanks to the talented David Oshima from Red Bull Japan, we at 7tune have had designed some special stickers to be used as tokens of the Japanese people’s appreciation for your generous offerings of support.
The 7ball is present but the 7tune orange has given way to the Japanese red to symbolize our feelings toward the cause.
And with this, you won’t need to say a thing about the vinyl because everyone who sees it will know you’ve made a difference…
Each set comes together, featuring words that tell the world and all your loved ones that you, along with all of us battling these difficult times, are in full support of Japan’s efforts.
Place them on your car. Stick them to your fridge. Put them on your computers. Tell your friends that you too, helped Japan get back on its feet. The money raised will go toward food, supplies, toys and baby goods, heating fuel, clothing and medicine for those that desperately need it. Remember – the more you support, the more we can too.
Please know that you guys are as much a part of the Ultimate JDM Experience as we are!
