  5. Hey Snow Japan community! Hope you all can help me spread the word on a project we have started to help raise funds to send a Sendai orphan to university. We have met with Masaya (the young man) and the orphanage director several times, and I must say Masaya is a GREAT kid and has so much potential. If you can please take a look at our Scholarship proposal below and PLEASE pass it along to anyone who may be able to help us! We could definitely use all the help we can get Much love, Paul (akitapow) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
