As USJETAA reflects on the fifth anniversary of the disasters of 3/11, we strive to honor the memory of two of our JET Progamme colleagues, Taylor Anderson and Monty Dickson, who lost their lives on that day while serving students in the Tohoku region. USJETAA has teamed up with GlobalGiving, which will provide a 50% match towards donations made to two projects run by the Taylor Anderson Memorial Fund (TAMF), starting at midnight, March 11, 2016 JST. Over the past two years, this effort by JET alumni across the U.S. has raised over $70,000 (including matching funds) to support the work of TAMF.
