Brigitta, of Miscellaneous, was in Tokyo at the time of the first earthquake on March 11th 2011: "I was in a train near Yokohama at the time of the first quake. At first I did not realize the shaking was a earthquake. Only when I stepped out of the vehicle it hit me. However I only learned about the severity of the earthquake many hours later." She returned safely to Amsterdam, but wants to contribute: "With this gesture I would like to support Japan in their fight. We need to help each other in such times."
