Hi Sue:

There is also a nice man in Japan named Yoshio Toyama that collects money 
there and comes to New Orleans every year and buys instruments for the poor 
school kids in New Orleans.

Anyone interested in writing him any words of encourgement can email him at:

Saints at js9.so-net.ne.jp

He runs an organization called:
  Wonderful World of Jazz Foundation.
Now that is a real OKOM fan.

Cheers,  Arigato :))   Teriyaki, sauce goes well on about anything, maybe 
even crawfish :))
