A follow up to the message we posted yesterday

Just wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who sent us messages of support and comments following the message that we posted on the report pages yesterday.

It was really encouraging to read all the sincere comments that we have received. And from so many people as well. Must admit, we were a bit shocked at the response! We really appreciate it.

Some people asked what they can do to help us. Probably the biggest help is to simply let other people know about SnowJapan and what we do. Either by just telling friends who might be interested, or by posting a link to any page within SnowJapan.com (links are a big help; no need to ask). While we are already highly discoverable on these here internets, believe it or not there are still folk out there who haven’t found us! ;)

Again, thank you very much for your comments and support and sorry that we can’t reply to them all individually.
