Thank you so much for all your kind and thoughtful inquiries.
We created a special section for the message board – children to children.
This is where children can leave messages for children in Japan who are facing not only the tragedy of the earthquake, tsunami, and fire, but also the fear of nuclear radiation.
Many children lost their houses, their belongings, and their loved ones.

We have received letters from state government officials expressing their gratitude.
Most schools opened in temporary places (One elementary school finally re-opened two months after the quake).
Children in Miyagi, Iwate, and Fukushima were excited to read messages from all over the world.
We are told that children are glad to receive comforting, encouraging, and heart-warming messages.

Please put children’s age or grades as well as their name (no last name, please; nickname is OK)s in the message, so the children in Japan know that kids their age are cheering them on.

We have translators, who are happy to translate your message. So please do not hesitate to leave a message in any language.

  • Kids can still leave messages for rescue workers, fire fighters, and police officers in another page >>>

Please see the following sample comment section on how to write a message to Japanese children.
After following the direction, you can leave the comments at the end of this page.

  26. I’m sorry about what happened in Japan. It must have been horrible, but that doesn’t mean that things will not get better because they will. Not a lot of people have experienced something like this, so not a lot of people know how it feels. I live in America but I care about Japan. Me and my friends donated money to your country to help rebuild the buildings that were lost.

  33. Dear friend,
    Hi my name is Hayden, I’m 10 years old in fifth grade and go to the Green Mount school. I hope that you and your family recover from the tsunami and earth quake. I herd that the nuclear reactors melted and know the air is toxic. I hope Japan will recover quickly.
    Good luck, Hayden


  34. It almost made me cry when I heard what happened to your country. It’s so sad to hear on the radio about a family, a school, and a town like mine has been devastated because of the disaster. I’ve seen everything is either under water or crushed. I’m glad that at least some of the population has survived, but I know most of your valuables are gone. I also want to let you know that I’m not the only one who cares. I hope the future will be better.

  38. Dear tsunami victim,
    I am very sorry that bad things are happening in your country. The tsunami was a horrible natural incident. It flooded the crops and wiped out cities. It also caused three out of the four nuclear reactors to melt down. My friends and I make and sell comic books and we will donate the profit to tsunami relief.
    Best wishes, Indy (4th grade)


  39. I can imagine how scared you are. I have heard about the earthquakes, tsunamis and nuclear power plants and the loss of everything you owned. I hope that your family members are okay and that you find each other if they are lost. I hope you can get enough food, water, and shelter.
    Many thoughts and hope,

    Best wishes, Nicole


  41. I’ve heard about the devastating earthquake. I want to make you feel better, after you might have lost your home or your loved one. My teacher showed us some pictures before and after the tsunami and the
    earthquake, and it shocked me. I feel so sorry for the children in Japan, who lost their belongings, and things that they cherished and loved. I hope that Japan, will grow back to its strong economy it was before the earthquake. I hope you and your family finds shelter, and a happy life again.
    Sincerely, Annie, 6th grade, age 11.

  43. Tali Bee True

    I couldn’t ever imagine what you must be going through right now. I don’t know you and you don’t know me but you have no idea how much I feel for you. You went through the worst possible thing and I am so proud of you for sticking it out. We are all thinking about you. I know this may sound cheesy but don’t loose hope. We love you and we are constantly thinking of you and cheering you on. I can’t wait to see all of the wonderful things that you and your country accomplish. Stay safe and don’t loose hope there is a light at the end of even the darkest tunnels.

  44. Dear children of Japan,
    I am very sorry for the tragedy that happened in Japan. I can imagine how it feels when your country is in really bad shape. I think you feel really scared and worried. I hope Japan can rebuild your homes and school. I also hope your loved ones are okay too. Also I know all the hard work you’ve been through. When I first heard it on the news I was in shock. I knew an earthquake or tsunami wouldn’t be good. I send good wishes to the children of Japan.
    Love, Shanda, 7th grade, age 13

  45. It’s hard for me to start writing this because I can’t imagine how you feel. I think it’s amazing and crazy that somebody my age could survive so much tragedy and not drown themselves in self-pity. Everyone in my school is thinking about you, and if you’ve made it this far, you can make it to the end and further. I hope this is literally the storm before the calm.

    Chloe, 12, grade 7.

  46. Dear new friend,
    This is a very sincere letter to you and your friends in this tragic time of need. I’m in the sixth-grade. I honestly don’t use words like sincere and tragic but I don’t know other ways to describe how I feel. I know this must be a hard time for you that just shows how strong you are for hanging in there. And I really hope you continue to show your strength. I will continue to keep you in my prayers. And I really do hope the best for you.
    Sincerely, Jeffrey

  48. I can’t imagine how you must have been feeling over the past two months. Your home has been destroyed, and you have to worry about whether or not your food has radiation poisoning. Just don’t give up, ‘cause one day you’ll be able to stop worrying, so just hold on until then.

    Edison, 6th grade, 12

  49. Hi my name is Ben. I am 12 years old and I am in sixth grade. I feel sorry for you I can’t imagine what it would be like in your point of view. I have donated money to help Japan and I know a lot of people who have done the same. I hope that things get better and that you have a good rest of your life.

  50. My name is Georgia, and I am 13 years old. I know that an earthquake destroyed much, but that the tsunami that followed destroyed even more there, in Japan. I know that many of you lost homes, possessions, friends, and family. I am sure that there are many other terrible things that happened that I do not even know about. I think that it must be a very hard, sad, scary thing to go through. I wish everyone good luck. I hope you will recover everything that is possible. I hope you will plant new seeds and build new houses. Although it will not be the same, maybe it will be better.

  51. Hello my friend. My name is Forrest. I am in 6th grade, and I am twelve. I feel very sorry for you. You have been through an earthquake, a tsunami, and probably radiation poisoning from the destroyed power plant. But alas, I can send you nothing but my wishes and prayers. I hope this comes out the best for you. If you have lost someone, be sure to keep them close in your heart.
    Our thoughts go with you,

  52. New Song Third Grade Students
