Japan's continued help to Oklahoma

Japan’s continued help to Oklahoma

The gentleman in Japan who adds Japanese translations to my videos is a Japanese citizen in Japan.  He is also a Kentucky Colonel, a member of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels.  He is Colonel Shun.

On the 11th of March, 2011 an earthquake tsunami ravaged Japan.  Shun started a donation fund to provide needed items for the victims.  Whatever was donated, he added 10%.  A fellow YouTuber, Kentucky Colonel Hunter learned about Shun’s benevolence and dedication causing him to nominate Shun to be a Kentucky Colonel to the governor of Kentucky.  The Governor commissioned Shun as a Kentucky colonel, thus we have Colonel Shun.

Soon after the tornados struck Moore, Oklahoma the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels sent out a request to Kentucky Colonels to help raise $90,000 to donate to the Salvation Army who was already in Moore, Oklahoma assisting the victims.

Japanese Kentucky Colonel Shun arrived in the USA to deliver a donation check in the amount of $13,600.  This donation was for the victims of the tornados that hit Moore, Oklahoma. 

The $13,600 was donated by people all across Japan, with Colonel Shun adding 10% of what each person donated.  The people of Japan will never forget Operation Tomadochi when the United States aided and assisted the victims of the 11 March, 2011 earthquake tsunami.  

The Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels will pass this donation on with additional funds to the Salvation Army in Moore, Oklahoma.

Recently Colonel Shun sent a check to the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels an additional $43,777.  This second check added to the first check represents a total of $57,377 donated by the people of Japan to the victims of the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.

When the people in Japan donated the money through online services or ATM’s in the space allotted to write their name, instead they wrote messages of encouragement.  Here are some of those messages:

・ Bear up Oklahoma
・ Sorry for small amount (although they donated $100)
・ I am very sorry for small amount but hoping it will help even a small portion
・ Thank you always. I am supporting you.
・ Cheer Up! Oklahoma
・ Bear up! Texas Daddy
・ We pray for you. Bear up!
・ Admiral Tony crew
・ Praying for your quick recovery
・ I want to be a part of helpers
・ Sorry for sending late
・ For good relationship between USA and Japan
・ Thank you for "Operation Tomodachi" this is repay an obligation
・ God bless you
・ Samurai Operation
・ To the American people, we are right next to you
・ I hope my heart will reach you
・ Japanese have never forgotten about the victims of tornado.
・ Just for gratitude
・ We are all with you
・ Thank you always

To the people of Japan  “Domo arigato gozaimasu.”
