Ophanage visit reported in Hokkoku Shinbun!

This just in from Anna Henderson in Ishikawa!

Hi! Thought you’d like to hear the Hokkoku Shinbun has published an article on orphanage visits in Ishikawa and some of the fundraising we’ve been involved in: http://www.hokkoku.co.jp/subpage/H20101029102.htm
I told them a lot more about Smile Kids and the origins in the interview but they couldn’t fit it in :(

The article is in Japanese, but take a look anyway with a little help of Google Translate.
