Elizabeth Andoh and publisher Ten Speed Press are both donating 50 percent of
their respective profits from the book to GlobalGiving’s Japan earthquake
and tsunami relief and recovery efforts. These efforts support the work of
Japanese non-profit organizations in the Tohoku region. Ms. Andoh and Ten Speed
Press have designated their contributions be used to Sponsor

and managed by Entrepreneurial Training for Innovative Communities (ETIC) has a
dual goal: creating jobs in the area devastated by the disaster and developing
a new generation of business leaders in Japan. To learn more about the Fellows Project, click here.
