Tzu Chi Kicks Off Street Fundraising for Japan Earthquake Relief

Starting tomorrow, Tzu Chi volunteers across the US will be collecting donations for disaster relief in Japan, including our Bay Area chapters. Volunteers have already contacted store owners in nearby Mountain View, who have given permission for Tzu Chi to set up charity stations. If you want to help out with fundraising, here is the list of locations close to campus:

Shift times: 10-12 PM, 12-2 PM, 2-4 PM
1. Kyo-Po Supermarket (3379 El Camino Real, Santa Clara)
2. 99 Ranch Market in Mountain View (1350 Grant Road, Mountain View)
3. Nijiya Market (143 East El Camino Real, Mountain View)

Shift times: 11:30-1:30 PM, 1:30pm-3:30 PM
4. New Mongolian BBQ (304 Castro St, Mountain View)
5. Queen House 元寶之家 (273 Castro St, Mountain View)
Tzu Chi volunteers will be recognizable in their blue and white uniforms. If there's interest in going to help out, just send us an e-mail. (khsu@stanford.edu and melhsiao@stanford.edu)

Another way you can help is to make a donation online:
Visit http://northerncal.us.tzuchi.org/nc.nsf/home/index for our local Tzu Chi chapter; you can use PayPal or Google Checkout to make a contribution to relief efforts.
and by keeping the people of Japan in our thoughts and prayers.
