By now, most of us have heard about the 8.9 magnitude earthquake in Japan, and the devastating tsunami that followed. I’ve been watching the news all night, and my heart hurts seeing all that’s happened over there.

I was in Japan about a year ago, and fell in love with the country. I have friends over there (who thankfully, as far as I know, are fine) and likely have family over there (I’m half-Japanese).

So in the spirit of wanting to help a country that I’ve fallen in love with, I am donating all of this weekend’s month’s sales from the Sushi Day Store to the Red Cross for Japan. If you’ve ever thought about getting a Sushi Day shirt or sushi kit, now is the best time ever to buy.

    Allison, I remember your Japan trip fondly and thought of it when I woke up to the news about the earthquake. Your pictures and stories were so vivid that it endeared me to the beauty of the country too. I’ve lived through my share of quakes and know intimately the damage and the process of rebuilding. Bless you for your generosity in helping Japan in their time of need.
