Japan Earthquake. A Message From Custom Builder Keino Sasaki.

“Hi, , hope you guys are doing well. As you have seen on the news,, Japan is facing disaster. My hometown where is my family is not affected since they  live 700 miles away from the disaster, but I have a few friends living in Sendai city who are experiencing the most horrible time that we can’t even imagine.

One of my friends, ,Souji Abe of Wild Road Choppers, who came all the way to Sturgis to participate to the 2007 AMD Championship is located in Sendai City. It was confirmed that he is alive, safe and evacuated, but since his shop was near the coast where the Tsunami swept the entire area I would imagine that the damage is devastating. It will take years to recover from a disaster of such magnitude. There’s nothing I can do except trying to help via relief funds. I would really appreciate if you have time to post these relief funds information on your media”

Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Response Team established connection with in-country partners who have been impacted by the damage and are identifying the needs and areas where Convoy of Hope may be of the greatest assistance. The best way to help is to donate online at Convoy Of Hope.  or text TSUNAMI to 50555 to donate $10 to Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Response efforts. Global Giving has already launched the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund, raising funds which they plan to distribute to various efforts in the region. International Medical Corps is responding to the health needs of the disaster’s victims. – The Red Cross is asking for $10 donations to their relief efforts in Japan online or by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to donate from your phone. Save The Children is moving quickly to address the situation there. Donations to their Children’s Emergency Fund will support this effort.  World Vision has also announced global mobilization in response to tsunami warnings. To help, consider making a donation to their World Vision’s Disaster Response Fund. Thank you” Keino Sasaki, Keino Cycles LLC

    Keino-San, I am so glad that your friends & family are all well & that your friend is alive in Sendai. as my freinds & family in Shizuoka are fine as well, but they have experienced a tremondous & horrifying quake& aftershocks from Shizuoka, Japan, near Mt. Fuji, that is a few hundred miles away from Sendai. I can only contact them thru email & Face Book. I have not been able to phone my relatives in Shizuoka to talk to them, but I will keep trying. Thank goodness for email.
    Japan is the first foregin country that Kiwi Mike had ever visited, when he lived in New Zealand, he enjoyed himself in Japan back in 1982, we went back together with our son Ross when Ross was 2 years old to visit my grandmother. Japan is a wonderful country of beauty & with wonderful warm friendly people. A lot of creative motorcycle builders have come from Japan, I’m sure you can name many of these creative people.
    Sendai & Riverside, Ca. are Sister Cities since 1957.
    Please keep the people of Sendai, Japan & Christchurch, New Zealand in your heart & thoughts.
    Kiwi- Mike & Carolyn Tomas
