What's going on here?

I've made a commitment: to do one good deed per day. Large or small, it doesn't matter. Self-sacrificing or not, extraordinary or mundane, it doesn't matter. Just one thing every day, that's all.

The more I do good, the better I feel about myself. Truly, to benefit others is to benefit yourself. I hope this journal may inspire others who also yearn to do good. So join me on this journey, if you will, and think about the difference you can make in your own life.

Convenience store yenny jar

For almost five years I've been putting yennies into a jar at convenience stores ("yenny" is my name for a one-yen coin, roughly equal to a U.S. penny). All this time I had no idea what it was for. I probably asked when I first arrived here, but my Japanese was too poor to understand the response. Since then I've just been tossing my annoying small change into the yenny jar. So finally I asked about it today, and found out it is a charity for the deaf and hard of hearing. After that, I tossed in substantially more than a penny's worth.

ONE GOOD DEED: Donate to a convenience store charity for the head of hearing.
