Our thoughts and prayers are with the many, many victims of the Japan tsunami and earthquake and their loved ones. As a means of expressing our sympathy – and in keeping with Japanese tradition – I am encouraging you to consider supporting the efforts of our UH Manoa International Student Association:
You will have an opportunity to provide monetary donations to the Japan Relief Fund this Thursday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at special tables in the Campus Center, Shidler College of Business, and Moore Hall. All the proceeds from these tables – staffed by the ISA, International Business Organization and other student volunteers - will go to the American Red Cross.
- You can help fold 1,000 paper cranes at the tables as a symbolic gesture of best wishes. 
- At the Campus Center, you can write a message of support to the Japan victims, which will be shared with the Japan Consulate here. 
- In addition, the ISA suggests making an on-line donation for those who cannot make it to the booths:
The ISA has adopted this statement, with which I strongly agree: "Disasters won't last forever - Aloha will bring us together."   Mahalo for supporting our global ‘ohana in this time of great tragedy.
Chancellor Virginia S. Hinshaw
