Japanese Model Tao Okamoto reaches out with an appeal in regard to the recent Catastrophe that is still happening now.
“When the quake happened I was in Tokyo with my family. We are very used to having earthquakes but I never felt I could die from that.
…We turned on the TV and saw [a] much worse, horrible story. We couldn’t believe what was happening not so far from our city. 6900 people died and still missing [are] a million people. And then the nuclear power problem…we are still in fear…I want to tell Japan that a lot of people in the world are encouraging us and helping us. We are not alone. So I’d like to ask [for] your help to express the feeling & [so that] we can do something together…”
