A Message of Hope from BornFree® Japan
As you already know, Japan has been going through a tragic disaster that has dramatically affected the lives of many families, mothers, and babies. Our hearts are with this country and their people who have been such an inspiration to all of us.
We’ve been in close contact with BornFree® Japan and our team members, led by our BornFree® Japan Mom Ambassador, Keiko, have been keeping us updated. We’re so happy to be able to say that our team in Japan is safe.
Keiko is the mother of a 3-year-old girl and is 7 months pregnant and wanted to share a message with all of you:
“It’s been two weeks since the great earthquake in Japan, and the number of death and missing are over 25,000, and more than 500,000 are still evacuating from disaster area or nuclear issue. Everyday we see the news on paper and TV about the little kids who lost both parents, still looking for their missing moms, moms who lost their kids….very very sad stories. Relief supplies are still difficult to reach people’s hand efficiently because of the level of disaster (streets and bridges are broken, serious shortage of gas etc). The other two BornFree® Japan Ambassadors and I have been talking about how we can help. We heard on the news that Twitter and Skype have been working better than cellphone or land phone lines in some disaster area. If your community is willing, we’d love to receive some encouraging words from worldwide to Japanese moms and babies who are going through rough times, to let them know our heart goes to them….we will translate them and share those on Japanese BornFree® Twitter and Facebook.” - Keiko
Please leave your kind words or hope and encouragement for moms and families in Japan below! We know how full of amazing people our community is and can’t wait to pass along your sentiments. Because Saturday, March 26th is BornFree Day, we’ll be choosing two commenters to send a Twin Pack of any bottle or cup variety of their choice. http://www.newbornfree.com
This is just part of our plan to step up for families in Japan. We’ll keep all of you updated and have a second message from Keiko soon!
