Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people,
can transform the world. — Howard Zinn
San Jose Japantown is getting in on the national bakesale for Japan. Want to take part? Here’s what you need to know:
When: Saturday, April 2nd from 10am-2pm
Where: Roy’s Station (197 Jackson St. in San Jose)
Who: Professional and amateur bakers, cooks, artists, artisans, and musicians coming together around food to make something BIG happen.
How: Want to help? We’ll need bakers, artists, volunteers, and lots and lots of customers. Please send offers of help to email@example.com
Why: So we can donate BIG BUCKS to Peace Winds Japan and help our brothers and sisters over there in the best way we can. Stay tuned for details.
We will be folding 1,000 paper cranes to send to friends in Japan. Do you have origami paper to donate? Can you teach others how to fold cranes on the day of the sale? If so, send me an email.
After the bakesale is over, we’ll be continuing our celebration and support of Japan. From 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Ukulele Jams and Ukulele Source will be holding a Kanikapila at the Roy’s Station to benefit Japanese Red Cross Tsunami and Earthquake Victims. Smiley and Janet Kai of Ukulele Source will be donating a Ukulele for the raffle. Baristas will be donating all of their tips for the day, and Roy’s Station will be donating 10% of their sales.
Please stay tuned to this page as we post updates leading up to the event!
