JAPAN XXXIV of C of #100daysofscouting


I follow several Scouting Unit on Facebook.  When I this Pack in Japan posting updates I sent an email to them asking how they are doing and what myself and the Pack could do.  It took a few days for them to respond, which is understandable.  However, below is their response.

They also posted to their Facebook page with the suggestion to read this link, which will tell people how to help.

Scouter Adam:

Thank you for your e-mail and concern for our Scouts here in Misawa.  Fortunately none of our Scouts or there families were directly impacted by this disaster, however many of our Japanese neighbors were not so fortunate.  We have tried to make contact with the Japanese Scouting organizations here in Northern Japan but have not been able to find out what if any assistance they need.  Our Scouts have been eager to get involved to help with the relief efforts but due to the grim nature of the aftermath they are unable to assist with clean-up efforts.

We have been contacted by several packs throughout the United States and asked what they can do to help but unfortunately due to severe restrictions on our military mail system we are not allowed to accept donated items.  If you are looking for ways that you can help might I suggest that you consider giving to one of the many International relief organizations such as the American Red Cross.  These organizations have people on the ground in these communities and know best what the Japanese people need, and are best equipped to get supplies to those who need it.
Again, thank you for your concern and support of our Scouts and Scouting here in Japan.

Hi there:

I follow your Pack on Facebook as Scouter Adam.  I noticed that your right in the middle of it.
I am the Cubmaster in Portland, OR of Pack 221.  While I am reaching out to see what I can do, I am not sure what I can do.

Are you all ok?  What do you need?  How could we get something to you if we were to try. (Not sure how it would happen due to what’s going on)

Yours in Scouting….
