In a show of love and support for the Japanese community after last Friday’s earthquake and tsunami devastated sections of the country, Junior Reid and his One Blood family have come together to raise funds to be sent to Japan in aid of those affected by the disasters.
Funds will be raised from the proceeds of last and next week’s instalment of his weekly Japanese Thursdays event, held at Club View on Eastwood Park Road.
The Japan disasters occurred on the second staging of Japanese Thursdays and Reid has now opted to partner with Yumi (a Japanese native who frequents the club) to contribute proceeds to the country.
The sun broke through the rain clouds Sunday morning as Josh Duhamel and Fergie sprinted for a cause at the Youth Run for Japan in Santa Monica.Inspired by the devastation faced by the Japanese people in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami, actor Josh once again partnered with the American Red Cross, following up with his fundraiser last year for Haiti. “When I saw some of those images come out of Japan, I’d never seen anything like it,” he said compassionately.It was a close call for Fergie and her band The Black Eyed Peas, who were in Japan to shoot a video a mere week before disaster struck. “Leaving there we had such a positive vibe and then this happened,” she said. “We were all tripping out that we were just there in Japan. It was just a wonderful chance for us to give a love letter back to Japan.” (ETonline.com)
