Bracelets available!

Hey there.

The fine folks from the USC Japanese Student Association have provided us with a great big bag of “Fight on Japan!” bracelets to show solidarity with Japaense disaster victims. We’re leaving some around campus here and there, but you can always email us at Info[@]uscforjapan.com to get one, or leave a note for us here. JSA’s fundraiser last week was a great success, and we’d like to thank them for getting out there and fighting for a good cause.

Please keep following us on Twitter and Facebook for more news. Have a good one!
