The Fruit Tree Project (Update)

I posted a few months ago about The Fruit Tree project, DQ reader Jon Hui's effort to provide fresh fruit for victims of the tsunami in northeast Japan.

The project has been tremendously successful--to date, almost 30,000 pieces of fresh fruit have been delivered, which is amazing. Also, there was recently an NBC Nightly News story about VolunteerAKITA (the organization involved with the Fruit Tree Project), and you can watch it here (it's the right link--just watch for a few seconds).
