Volunteers Knit Hats for Japanese Earthquake Victims
The devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan affected everyone but there simply did not seem to be a way to help other than to make a monetary contribution. After seeing a photo of the snow settled over the huge piles of debris an idea was born — we could knit hats and send them to the Japanese people. Several students, staff members and even a few family members quickly put their skills to work and before long a box of hats was ready to ship. Lisa Davis, and Amanda Turner, two of the knitters join Nichole Davis as the box of hats is prepared to ship to the people of Japan. Nichole had lived in Japan for 4 years and was happy to write "Thinking of you" in Japanese on a slip of paper that was attached to the inside of each hat. In this small way, the USC School of Law is reaching out to those in need. Knitters will continue to make hats — Fall and Winter will be here before we know it.
