Together\, as a global friendship\, we aim to encourage regrowth and recovery in Japan\, as well as cultivate a growing sense of community and hope.&nbsp\;\n\n"Operation Tomodachi" is the offic ial name of relief efforts in Japan by the US military. The name "Operatio n Tomodachi" perfectly represents the idea of having friends from all over the world\, coming together\, to collaborate for a common humanitarian ef fort. Using the same name and spirit\, but with art\, we hope to bring aid and awareness to those who have been affected by the tsunami and earthqua kes.\n\nFor more information\, please visit:\n\n<a href="http://operationt omodachi.blogspot.com/">http://operationtomodachi.blogspot.com/</a> SUMMARY:Operation Tomodachi URL:/en/events/2011/04/17/operation-tomodachi/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
