On Tuesday, April 5 th the AAI team met with both Hands on Tokyo and Second Hand Harvest in Japan to discuss aid distribution. They also prepared 1,000 pounds of relief supplies that AAI volunteers brought with them on the Hawaiian Air flight for distribution in areas north of Tokyo. On April 6th the AAI team met with warehouse staff near the Narita airport to inspect the 3,000 square feet of donated space that was offered to AAI for storage of aid supplies.

19 AIRLINK FEEDBACK 19 I want to thank AirLink, and Particularly Hawaiian and JetBlue Airlines, for helping us with our response to the disaster in Japan. We were able to combine their two offers to allow me a no-cost roundtrip flight, which helped keep our efforts on the ground focused and progressive. With simultaneous efforts underway in Haiti, Japan, and now Missouri our resources are strained, and knowing that the "AirLink Team" is there to provide support and encouragement means a lot to all of us at All Hands Volunteers. Thanks, David -- David Campbell Executive Director All Hands Volunteers PO Box 546 Carlisle, MA

28 MORE AIRLINES & NGOs NEEDED  Airline participants have no obligations to provide any lift at all  Airlines can “shop” for a NGO/project or input available capacity  The website is user-friendly and accessible 24/7  NGOs enter “needs” into the AirLink site for all participating airlines to see  AirLink is a one stop shop to access trusted, vetted NGOs  Airlines are free to charge a fee and to make a profit from the shipments that they carry  We need as many airline and NGO participants as possible to ensure that AirLink becomes a true marketplace 28

29 SO REMEMBER...  1/7 people of the World are hungry or malnourished  25% do not have access to proper medical care  A child dies from hunger every 6 seconds  AirLink can help!! 29
