Japan Fundraiser Dinner

What:

Following news of the massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the Mattole Valley communities of Honeydew and Petrolia are organizing a relief fundraiser in solidarity with the Japanese. We are asking you to join our efforts with a donation for the fundraising dinner, show, and silent auction to be held Saturday April 2nd from 5-9 at the Mattole Community Center
Our communities have a history of uniting to support victims of natural disaster. We raised over $4,000 for relief for both the 2010 Indonesian Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. With your help, we aim to raise at least $4,000 to support Japanese relief efforts.

Over 215,000 people are in emergency refugee camps in Japan. Funds raised by this effort will be directed towards relief efforts in two towns – Miyako, which is one of the most severely hit areas, plus the village of Katashina-mura, a little village in Gunma prefecture. Katashina-mura is a village of 5,000 that is known, like much of Humboldt County, for its beautiful scenery. The village has already accepted 1,000 refugees from Fukushima prefecture and are preparing for 4000 more.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this tragic disaster. Please join our efforts and make your donation multiply at the April 2nd fundraiser.

  • Thank you., Kym, organizers, Mattole, Honeydew, Petrolia, and all you community neighbors coming together and giving help. Way cool… and less sadness.

    peace to all, you and yours… skippy

  • Dude, entry after entry! You’re sorta on a blog-posting mania, huh?

  • RAMDX,

    I am. The tsunami kind of set me off. But if I don’t slow down, my husband may divorce me on grounds of desertion. I think it was a psychic break or as Suzy so kindly pointed out possibly it is narcissism. Or possibly I just think it is fun.

    • No, Kym, there’s nothing remotely narcissistic about your blog.

      Here’s what wikipedia has to say about narcissism: “Narcissism is the personality trait of egotism, vanity, conceit, or simple selfishness.”

      For example Suzy’s comment on the nuclear thread, where somehow it’s all about Suzy and how sensitive Suzy is and how much Suzy suffers from worrying about disasters like what’s going on in Japan, what with Suzy’s diarrhea and night terrors and radiation worries, and 2012, and on and on, but don’t worry because Suzy’s praying for all of us…

      • Suzy didn’t mean narcissism in the bad sense of the word, I meant it in the good sense, of course. The good sense as RAMDX did, I am quite sure, when she referred to our exquisite blog host’s exaggerated behavior characteristic as a “mania”. Hope that straightens it out. After all, as Kym so wittily quipped, maybe narcissism is fun. LOL! Suzy agrees.
        blessings to all in the wake of this horrible horrible tragedy,

        • Yes, please don’t misunderstand! I meant mania in the very best and most positive sense of the word as in dude’s on a manic roll.

  • Suzy Blah Blah busts me up! I like her posts, her sunshiney personality, and just the name always makes me smile every time I see it. I bet Suzy is just as fun in person and always the life of the party.

    Now, onto narcissism. Thanks for taking the rap, Kym. I hope it wouldn’t be narcissistic of me to think it was… me? Following my post RAMDX could’ve said Dudette? OMG, it is me. I’m the narcissist. I don’t want to be a narcissist, narcissistically speaking. Am I? Spelling it is horrendous. The N word. The horror of it all. Oh, the humanity.

    You have been on a passionate tear lately, Kym, and it’s welcome. You’re really good at what you do and what a pleasure it is seeing it evolve. Keep an eye on the kids, though, they can get into lots of trouble without supervision. Uh, Suzy, too.

    stay busy, get some rest… skips

    • My, what a pleasant thing to wake up to, thanks so much for the appreciation … And you are absolutely right, Skips, I am a lot of fun in person. And, Suzy most definitely is the life of the party! How do I do it? Tip, I always always arrive late. By that time the partyers have imbibed plenty and they are ready for the exceptional, and then Suzy appears, and I am experienced by all as being fabulously stunning! We went to two parties last night, arriving at the 1st @11pm and the 2nd @ 1am –oh my head! LOL! tip #2, It’s sooooo much fun getting ready, (if it’s not, your not ready to party). I spend several hours getting prepared, listening to music, dancing, watching films, etc, Suzy loves to watch old comedy films like the 3 stooges to get in the mood before going out. Last night it was Mae West starring in The Dentist –ouch!, or something like that. And of course getting dressed. I always take at least 3 or 4 hours to get dressed, and believe me it makes all the difference in the world –yes I receive innumerable compliments on my costumes. Did you know that Liz Taylor arrived late at her funeral? Now that is passionate.

      ps, I’ll take care of the supervision.
