On behalf of Casady School Service-Learning YAC and the Casady Middle School International Club, I want to “Arigato” to all the JASO members who participated in Walk the World OKC 2011 and for your donations of time, talent and funding. Your contribution helped us collect enough funding to feed 14 children for a year through the United Nations World Food Programme School meals and 2 Oklahoma children through the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. See results, memory slide show and program of the small walk at http://walktheworldokc.blogspot.com/ .
