Arigato for coming- IPPO x 365 - Reflections on the Japanese Front

Thank you so much for coming to our IPPO x 365 event! (日本語は下記へ)

On Saturday, March 10 2012, 140 people gathered in SOHO and were moved by energetic and heart-warming presentations.  $1,022 in donation were collected and will be sent to Architecture for Humanity’s Japan Reconstruction Fund.
"IPPO" means "One Step".  This event might not be a big step towards the reconstruction, but I believe it encouraged many New Yorkers to take their steps. 
For those who missed it, please take a look at the recorded video.
Thank you again and let's keep stepping forward!
