Please Help If You Can

Hi Everyone,

I hope this blog finds everyone well! I'm writing in regards to the events happening in Japan. It's been so hard for me to think about anything else these days.

I feel so helpless for all of my friends over there... I'm sure a lot of you have already donated or are supporting in your own way (positive thoughts of hope help!)... But I'm sort of losing my mind just sitting here knowing all this is going on, so I'm writing to pass on the Red Cross link where you can help by donating if you are able to:

https://american.redcross.org/site/Donation2?idb=0&5052.donation=form1&df_id=5052

You can also donate $10 by texting "Red Cross" to 90999.

If you have a "Living Social" account, they have an amazing "deal" going on right now, for the next 22 hours, where whatever you donate to the Red Cross through THIS link, they will double it!

I apologize in advance if I'm offending anyone by writing this. Having many friends in Japan, and having spent a good deal of time working, living, and celebrating my marriage over there, I feel very close to what's happening, and it's breaking my heart every day...

That being said, I'm sending lots of love to you all! Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Love,
p. ahn

  6. Hi Priscilla -

    Thanks for posting this video and for raising awareness of how your fans/followers can help the people of Japan. I am compelled to add that frequent fliers of United Airlines can either donate $ or miles to the Red Cross, the former of which can result in being granted a mileage bonus of up to 500 bonus miles. The details / terms / conditions are here:

    http://www.united.com/page/article/1,,53715,00.html

    On that page, there are links to the following:
    1) donate $ to the Red Cross (resulting in bonus FF miles);
    2) donate miles to Red Cross workers; and
    3) donate miles to Operation USA

    Not that anyone should feel like they need something in return for their generosity, but if it helps travelers visit their family and friends, I think it's a good thing. I actually got the e-mail announcement days after I donated to the Red Cross last Friday, so I saw it as a good karma thing...

    Anyway, I hope you've fully recovered from your stomach bug that laid you out in SF.

    Take care and God Bless,
    Greg P.

  8. Thank you, Priscilla. I'm Japanese. Though my area had no damage, I feel all people are really really hurt at this terrible situation, whether victims or not. Too sad, too painful. But life goes on. So I just live every day to the fullest, doing everything what i can do. Your song really helps me. Thank you Priscilla. And thank you everyone who is praying for Japan. From the bottom of my heart! I believe that we can smile again together. Y

  9. This was really powerful. Your music is always a piece of beauty but with this I could see a picture of something so deep, now using beauty to help others. Thank you.
    The whole song is wonderful but I especially liked the line,
    "Somebody hears when you cry at night,
    Somebody cares, it's gonna be alright"
    It's true, no matter how hard it is to believe.
    Love it.

  12. Thank you Priscilla for your words and for your music. Your song for Japan has touched my heart. You play beautiful music and inspire me each day.
    I feel the same about Japan. I feel as though Japan is my second home. I would have been in Japan today, but due to the situation, we cancelled our trip. It's a place that's definitely always in my heart. I'll keep donating and praying for Japan.

    Dear Priscilla,
    Wonderful idea to donate and finish making that wonderful song. The Japanese Tsunami and earthquake is a great thing to make a video for. I wonder how fast Japan's government will clean up what the Tsunami and earthquake left behind.Probably very fast since they are very smart. I am hoping that all those missing friends you have there aren't injured. I hope that all those missing people are found with injuries nothing more serious. I donated and hope the money will help the cause well. Scared and terrified people there and especially for the families! Since if I were there I would be nervous and very terrified since I'm only ten years old.

    Your Biggest Fan Ever,
    Emma

  16. Thank you for the beautiful song! I live in Japan and had a good friend living in one of the areas that was heavily hit... so it was hard for me to think about much else either, but he passed through my (undamaged) area today in his travels, cheerful as ever. A lot of the images I've seen of the devastation are really awful but I also think that Japan will rebuild and get through this, and I plan to donate to the Red Cross ASAP :)
