Hey everybody - I've been thinking about the situation of orphans in Japan and toying with the idea of getting a group of charitably-minded individuals to do things like go visit them, bring them presents on Christmas, or just be there to listen to them and be a role model. I'm open to ideas for things to benefit other groups as well, like the homeless, battered women's shelters (do they have those in Japan?), that sort of thing as well - I just don't know very much on these subjects.
At the moment, I don't have any plans for activities, but I want to meet, maybe sometime in January 2015, and put together some ideas for what can be done as a group to assist those bereft of the kinds of support that we enjoy.
Please join if you are truly interested in helping others and desire greater opportunities to do so. I will organize the first meeting depending on how many people show interest. Thanks!
