I felt like I should make some small attempt at helping to keep those Japanese citizens in mind as we go through our day. What could I do that has meaning to me, gives thought to those who are suffering, but still not make people feel guilty for not sending money to charity. I for one simply cannot afford to donate right now and I imagine there are a lot of you really can’t spare $10 at the moment.
Today I decided this would be fun, it’s a “What is your first name in Japanese?” site. I am going to be spending the whole week writing my name with the spelling (hopefully I can copy and paste the traditional *kanji characters. My name, Holly, is pronounced HORII, Hor-ee, extending the ee sound.
Follow along and add your Japanese name (and the link) to your blog or site. Give the name on a coffee mug or a mousepad as a gift to a friend.
*This dictionary does not contain Japanese names. Japanese names are normally written using kanji characters, not katakana.
