As many may know we at The Kura have been heavily
involved in the relief effort in Tohoku following the
2011, March 11 Earthquake and Tsunami which killed at
least 26,000 people, and left hundreds of thousands
homeless. During this last year we have neglected the
website, and inconvenienced many with delays in service.
Please know it was not without good reason, and your patience
and understanding through this difficult time for Japan
has been very much appreciated. For more on our efforts
please see http://www.idrojapan.org
After this first year anniversary we are now looking forward
to getting back to the business of collection building, and
look forward to working with you again in 2012. Sincerely: Robert Mangold
