Center for Women and Families (CFWAF), 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization started by a single mother assisting single parents and under privileged families in Orange County, California. Following the massive earthquake and tsunami that struck the northern coastal area of Japan, the organization's focus turned global.    

"As we started the earthquake relief efforts and collection of donations, we received the same question that is common to almost all donors, where do my donations go?" stated Naoko Kimura, Founder of CFWAF. In many occasions, donations are passed on from one nonprofit organization to another nonprofit organization. Naoko Kimura also adds "I saw some gaps in delivery of relief items between shelters and people who still live in their homes despite of the damages by tsunami, it is very important for me to make sure that the relief items from us are delivered to the people who have not yet received what they need, especially two months after the horrible event." CFWAF has shipped one 20-foot container full of donations early this month to Japan. List of the donors for the Organization's first phase of the relief efforts are: K-Line in Long Beach, CA, Southcoast International in Carson, CA, 99 Cents Only Stores in City of Commerce, CA, Rubbermaid Consumer in Huntersville, NC, Employees of The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA, and Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA in Cypress, CA. All of these donors have provided significant and valuable support to the Organization. CFWAF's Founder, Naoko Kimura lives in Southern California and is originally from Tokyo, Japan. She is planning the next stage of relief efforts.

Potential donors should review the Organization's website for details. Contact the Organization if you have any questions regarding the relief efforts.
