Takashi Restaurant is raising money for the victims of the Japan earthquake. Beginning this weekend, customers can choose to donate $5 after they dine. 91% of donations will go directly to the victims. You can also simply visit the American Red Cross website to donate what you wish.
Chef Takashi Yagihashi has family and friends living in and around Mito, Japan, not far from Miyagi. Yagihashi has heard from his immediate family, all of whom are doing o.k., but he is still waiting to hear from some friends and relatives.
He says any donation, no matter how small, will make a big difference to those suffering in Japan.
