Moms in Business Unite collecting donations for Japan disaster victims

Moms in Business Unite, which hosts a conference to enhance for women and mom business owners, is accepting donations at on its website to send to Japan to help survivors of the recent earthquake and tsunami.

Executive Director Kyoko Tanaka has been personally touched by the tragedy. Here parents live north of Tokyo, and although their home sustained only minor damage, her 78-year-old father was missing for 18 hours, stranded in the subway. The couple had already planned a visit to San Diego to celebrate their daughter’s birthday and were able
to make it here, but will return to Japan soon.

Tanaka, who’s been a U.S. resident since 1982, plans to donate some of the proceeds from her company, Tanaka Graphics, to help earthquake/tsunami survivors.

“There’s so much need over there right now, I wondered what I could do as
one person, but if my efforts help even one woman feed an innocent baby,
I’ll feel I’ve contributed,” Tanaka said.
