Wanted: Volunteers to give a hand on next holiday

Dear readers,

Here is a quick call for volunteering.

An association I am working voluntarily is organizing a trip to Sendai area to deliver home appliances and furniture we have been gathering from the people who left Japan.

As we do not have enough hands for the whole work, we are actively recruiting people who would like to help. Here is the full text : 

Silver Week is coming, the "friends" are hiring
by Les Amis du Tohoku on Monday, September 12, 2011 at 11:20pm

EDIT: the day has changed from 23rd to 22nd in order to avoid congestion on the Tohoku expressway on a national holiday, moreover reduced to a single lane because of (long overdue) construction work.

Dear friends, through our Facebook page you have been able to follow us and our activities, picking up furniture and home appliances around Tokyo. You have been hearing our calls for donation but were not moving and had neither furniture nor home appliances to donate.

Now is your chance to make a difference, to show that you really love Japan, and that you are a friend of the disaster-hit Tohoku area.

Come join us, come help us for the preparations to the next journey, or even the journey itself, on September 22nd 2011.

We are looking for the following kind of volunteers :
- On the day of departure, people to help clean the goods
- On the day of departure, people to help load the truck 
- From the day of departure to following evening, people to drive the truck (standard driving license required*)
- From the day of departure to following evening, people to join us with their own car and come help to unload.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to find out about this trip, to volunteer,or for any other reason. by mail:

[*]: for any inquiries about driving license, please contact us as well
