Bake Sale for Japan Tsunami Efforts

We are stepping up to help with the San Jose Bakesale for Japan. 

Bakesale for Japan - The San Jose Event
Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. -- Howard Zinn

San Jose Japantown is getting in on the national bakesale for Japan. Want to take part? Here's what you need to know:
When: Saturday, April 2nd from 10am-2pm
Where: Roy’s Station (197 Jackson St. in San Jose)
Who: Professional and amateur bakers, cooks, artists, artisans, and musicians coming together around food to make something BIG happen.
How: Want to help? We’ll need bakers, artists, volunteers, and lots and lots of customers. Please send offers of help to sanjosebakesale@gmail.com
Why: So we can donate BIG BUCKS to Peace Winds Japan and help our brothers and sisters over there in the best way we can. Stay tuned for details.

We will be folding 1,000 paper cranes to send to friends in Japan.

After the bakesale is over, we'll be continuing our celebration and support of Japan. From 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Ukulele Jams and Ukulele Source will be holding a Kanikapila at the Roy's Station to benefit Japanese Red Cross Tsunami and Earthquake Victims. Smiley and Janet Kai of Ukulele Source will be donating a Ukulele for the raffle. Baristas will be donating all of their tips for the day, and Roy's Station will be donating 10% of their sales.

Roy's will have some great prizes to raffle off, including a Kala soprano travel 'ukulele (MSRP $225.00). 100% of the raffle proceeds will be donated to the relief fund. We will be using Jim Beloff's The Daily Uke for most of the songs for our monthly kanikapilas. This books is a compilation of 365 songs (one for every day of the year) with a good variety. If you would like your own copy, you can pick one up at Ukulele Source. For each book sold between now and April 2nd, Ukulele Source will donate $5.00 to the relief fund.
