Ofunato and International Aide.... All Hands Volunteers. THE BIG BLOG Part ONE....

At 41 I have learned  a lot about living but the most important thing I have learned in Japan is to be present at every moment in my life and 

The Unexpected….

Circumstances the last few days led me to an amazing group of International Volunteers called ALL HANDS

What is most impressive is the humility and hard work that this group of people put in everyday , 6 days a week to help the region that they are in to heal itself. In Japan the group is led by Marc Young the Director  of Global Operations.  In Ofunato, Japan Marc has coordinated a group of over 80 volunteers to go out and improve conditions throughout the community.

Each individual volunteer gives 110% of themselves to their projects: And always done with a smile and a passionate “CAN DO” attitude.  None of the individuals are being paid to be in these disaster areas . They are also currently in Minot where the Tornadoes occurred and in Leogone, Haiti where the earthquake occurred in 2010.
