A Bond is Cultivated
On March 11, 2011, Japan was devastated by the largest recorded earthquake to ever hit the island nation. The 9.0 magnitude earthquake and ensuing tsunami claimed 15,854 lives, left 3274 missing, and became the most expensive natural disaster in world history.
The rescue, cleanup, and rebuilding effort has been massive, but thanks to the quick actions of the United States military and the generosity of the American people, Japan is now on the rise again.
The goal of the Operation 2000 Cherry Tree Project is simple.
We ask that you join us in our effort to plant 2000 cherry trees in Ohio as a symbol of Japan’s gratitude for the help of our American friends.
Thank you, American Soldiers in Operation Tomodachi.
Thank you, Friends in America.
We send you Cherry Blossoms as a symbol of our Gratitude.
This is for you.
