The funds we contribute will be used to assist those in need from the earthquake and destruction experienced in Japan this week. Japan has said that this disaster is its greatest challenge since World War II. Please read the emails below from President Mike and from past JCI President Scott Greenlee asking for our support and discuss with your board to see if your state could make a contribution now. I will be making a contribution. Many thanks, Kathryn Collins #51469 Region 1 VP -- 2010-2011 US JCI Senate "ONE Fantastic Region" From: Michael O'Connell Date: Sat, Mar 12, 2011 at 9:21 PM Subject: FW: JCI Operation Hope - Help Japan TODAY! Fellow Senators – Below is a request for assistance to Japan from Past JCI President Scott Greenlee #60646. I encourage you to forward this message to our membership. While we may not be able to meet Scott’s timeline for personal delivery we can send checks to: JCI Operation Hope @ JCI World Headquarters, 15645 Olive Blvd,, Chesterfield, MO 63017. You have been asked to assist. Mike O'Connell #40225 39th USJCI Senate President From: Scott Greenlee Sent: Saturday, March 12, 2011 7:42 PM To: Scott Greenlee Subject: JCI Operation Hope - Help Japan TODAY! Importance: High Friends - I am sure that like myself, you have been watching the events in Japan and thinking of our JCI (Jaycees) family. I have many friends there who are struggling. Their SG was stranded in downtown Tokyo for 24 hours. Many of the members of JCI Sendai have lost everything and some are even still unaccounted for. This is the home of the 2007 JCI Treasurer Tak Goto who is the current Foundation Chairman, a great friend, and one of the most generous people I know. I was pleased to get a message from him that he is physically ok, but as noted, several of their members are not accounted for at this time. JCI Japan and its members are among the first to take action whenever JCI projects call for support. Whether when Operation Hope is activated to invest in sustainable recovery in disaster-stricken areas or when JCI Nothing But Nets raises funds to fight malaria, JCI Japan members can be counted on to respond. Today these same individuals are the ones who are most in need of our action and our sympathies. JCI will work with JCI Japan to coordinate projects to evaluate the needs of the affected areas and address them to sustain the nation’s recovery from this tragedy. JCI members around the world are encouraged to offer what support they can to help Japan overcome this disaster and return life to normal for millions of citizens. In 2005, JCI started JCI Operation Hope as a charitable arm of JCI, largely with the help of JCI Japan, to help with recovery from natural disasters. The background from the JCI website is below. I am asking you to give very generously to this cause, and quickly. I will be headed to Asia on Thursday of next week, and would like to take as many checks with me to present to the 2011 JCI World President, Kentaro Harada, from Japan. This fund has NO OVERHEAD – 100% goes to relief as it is managed by the JCI Executive Board, and the staff that is already at JCI manages it. As such please also ask friends, family, and coworkers if they want to help the situation and collect their donation as well. I would ask that you give GENEROUSLY today – personally, with your chapter/district/region/state, your business, etc. If you mail a donation to me today I will get it to present in person. I will also be somewhere Wednesday night where you can drop off checks or cash which would be converted to a check with each person getting a receipt for tax purposes. I will let you know where you can drop off your donation in a day or two on Wednesday night. I can also pick up in Lansing and Grand Rapids if needed. But in the mean time, if you can, please mail your check today. Make your check payable to: JCI Operation Hope Mail to: Scott Greenlee 1502 Manton NE Grand Rapids, MI 49505 Please review below and call me with any questions, and please feel free to forward to others. And please give generously. From the JCI Website: Background In December of 2004, deeply affected by the tsunamis in Southeast Asia, countless JCI members all over the world expressed their desire to help the victims. To promote and coordinate relief efforts worldwide, 2005 JCI President Kevin Cullinane approved JCI Operation Hope, which was officially launched January 1, 2005. "JCI Operation Hope is our first effort in years to involve our JCI community towards such a large project and make things happen with our hands rather than through the hands of someone else," said Secretary General Edson A. Kodama. During 2005, JCI members in countries affected by the tsunamis received assistance from JCI members from many other countries, as well as from other contributors, such as Dr. Dato Tan Hian Tsin. Those donations were effectively used to assist tsunami victims, primarily children. In Sri Lanka, for example, fishermen who had lost their boats received boats, and children who had lost their school were provided with a new, modernized school. In January 2006, the JCI Board of Directors considered the success of JCI Operation Hope in 2005 and the need to assist other areas of the world that were facing disasters. JCI President Lars Hajslund asked Board members to discuss a new policy regarding JCI Operation Hope. SG Edson Kodama observed that the numerous tragedies in 2005 demonstrated that it was necessary to create a permanent JCI fund to assist victims. Thus, the 2006 JCI Board of Directors approved the new “Policy 18-14, JCI Operation Hope," as proposed by General Legal Counsel Graham Hanlon, which reads as follows: POLICY 18-14. JCI OPERATION HOPE: “A permanent fund made up of donations from members and non-members shall be maintained to assist, through JCI members, the victims of natural or other disasters. The fund shall be administered by the Executive Committee." JCI Executive Vice President Shoji Okuhara, appointed JCI Operation Hope Taskforce Chairman at the 2005 World Congress in Vienna, reported on activities conducted to provide relief and focused on plans for the future. For example, he said JCI Japan members would continue assisting abandoned orphans on the Island of Nias, Indonesia. He added that he was planning to go to Pakistan, where earthquakes had caused extensive damage, to see how JCI could help. In 2008, JCI members in various areas of the world are facing serious challenges and are requesting assistance from their fellow members in other countries. Thanks So Much!
