We are seldom reminded, as we have been the last few days, of how quickly lives can change or be lost. The level of destruction from the earthquake and tsunami in Japan could lead some of us to inaction when considering the immensity of the work ahead, it’s hard to know where to start, but the work will go ahead because it must and, as with any other setback in life, you start doing what you can, where you are, with what you have.
Because of Japan’s enormous role in the motorcycle industry, Greg Hatton and Jon Bekefy thought it would be fitting to organize motorcycle riders, enthusiasts, employees and fans on every level and create a place to contribute to the relief efforts, helping, in return, a country that has contributed so much to all of us. MotoForJapan is that place.
Contributions are forwarded to the Red Cross relief efforts. You can contribute a little or a lot, but anything you give will help get Japan back on its feet. Look outside your own window, then look at the photos and videos from Japan. The people of Japan are strong but they could use a hand during this time of very immediate need.
If you prefer, you can also contribute directly to the American Red Cross.
