As news of the devastation in Japan started filtering in last months, our thoughts and prayers went out to the people of Japan. This is especially true given our decades-long relationships with our customers in Japan. In fact, I had just returned from there a few weeks ago and spent time with my good friend Morito of Ixis Corp located in Fukushima. Each year he brings me a special gift of Mamador bean cakes and I bring them home to my children. They know Morito as the "Mamador Man" and they are so grateful for these wonderful treats.

And that is when the employees of ROTHCO decided to work together to raise money for the Save the Children “Japan Children in Emergency” Fund. Save the Children is the leading independent organization creating lasting change in the lives of children around the world. Through employee contributions and a generous donation by ROTHCO ownership, we are proud to say that collectively ROTHCO has raised around $4000 to donate to this important cause. In addition, we took our cause viral by encouraging our over 10,000 Facebook fans and Twitter followers to donate as well. With a disaster of the this magnitude every bit helps!
