AIRLINK HELPING JAPAN
Through AirLink Hawaiian Air donated five round trip seats to Airline Ambassadors International (AAI) for a mission to set up aid distribution logistics. On Tuesday, April 5th the AAI team met with both Hands on Tokyo and Second Hand Harvest in Japan to discuss aid distribution. They also prepared 1,000 pounds of relief supplies that AAI volunteers brought with them on the Hawaiian Air flight for distribution in areas north of Tokyo. On April 6th the AAI team met with warehouse staff near the Narita airport to inspect the 3,000 square feet of donated space that was offered to AAI for storage of aid supplies.
I want to thank AirLink, and Particularly Hawaiian and JetBlue Airlines, for helping us with our response to the disaster in Japan. We were able to combine their two offers to allow me a no-cost roundtrip flight, which helped keep our efforts on the ground focused and progressive.
With simultaneous efforts underway in Haiti, Japan, and now Missouri our resources are strained, and knowing that the "AirLink Team" is there to provide support and encouragement means a lot to all of us at All Hands Volunteers.
