Operation Hope for Japan

My good buddy Tetsuya Hasegawa is a chiropractor in Dallas, TX.  I met "T" through bobsled.  While I worked with Bobsled, the last couple years, T worked with the Skeleton athletes.  We were roommates in the Athlete Village for 3 weeks last year at the 2010 Olympics.
T grew up in Japan and still has many family and friends there.  I'm sure you've seen some of the heart wrenching footage coming out of Japan after the Tsunami.  T has started a project called Operation Hope for Japan.  He is trying to raise a dollar for every life lost during the earthquake and tsunami.  

T is currently trying to get Operation Hope for Japan non profit status, but in the meantime  you can send checks to:

Operation Hope for Japan, 6720 Horizon Road, Heath TX 75032. Pay to the order of Operation Hope for Japan. 

T is a great guy and I can vouch that this is a legitimate way to help out.
