The Lost & Found Project began as "Salvage Memory," a project to recover photographs swept away by the Great Eastern Japan Tsunami on March 11, 2011 and return them to their owners.
Many of the photographs that were found were able to be returned to their families, there were also those which were too badly damaged to be returned. Munemasa Takahashi, a photographer, and Kazuto Hoshi, a resident of Yamamoto, were both involved in "Salvage Memory" and decided to exhibit these damaged photos which would otherwise have been thrown out.
The exhibition they put together has traveled around the world and raised money to help support people in temporary housing and purchase supplies for damaged schools. For more information, please visit http://lostandfound311.jp/en/
PSPINC will have our copy of the book available to view in our lobby.

Finally, we also need to acknowledge the host families. They contribute so much by giving their time and opening up their homes to the students, and the Summer Experience program simply would not happen without them. Their gifts are more than simply monetary, as they form new friendships and lasting bonds with the students and PSPCF cannot thank them enough for their assistance each year.
It has been a very busy couple of weeks here at PSPINC, but we're proud of the program and all the people who worked so hard to make it run smoothly and ensure that it happened in the first place. The PSPCF Summer Experience is only possible with the aid of our volunteers, sponsors and host families. Thank you for all of your contributions to this year's program, and we hope we may count on your continued assistance as we continue in our mission to provide hope to children affected by disaster.
