Claire, 11, is currently the youngest of my photography students and enjoys learning photography every time.  She has also been learning Aikido since she was 4 years old from her father, a teacher of the traditional Aikido Iwama style.

Aikido Iwama style dojos are located all over the world
.

Currently, many teachers at the Kyiv Dojo in Ukraine are going to the battlefield.The dojo is a refuge for Ukrainian children.
Recently, when there is no air raid, they gather at the gymnasium
and start practicing.

When Claire heard from her father about the disaster in 
Ukraine she asked, "Is there anything I can do myself to help?" 
I said that I had donated my postcard sales to a local youth organization in the past. 
Perhaps she could do something like that, I suggested.

Claire, who was born in Japan and raised in Canada, has created postcards based on photos taken in Vancouver, and is using the proceeds from the sale to support the education of children evacuating to the Kyiv Dojo. The "Claire Postcard Project" has started to develop.

There are many cherry blossoms donated by Japan like Vancouver in Ukraine.

When her parents told the principal of the elementary school she attends about 
this project, she received the support of the principal, teachers, and parents, 
who cooperated with the success of the project.

There are 11 postcards, including cherry blossoms that are enjoyed by the 
citizens of Vancouver every spring, the evening view of False Creek near her home, 
Alice Lake in Squamish, Seagulls flying freely, and Claire's dog Charlie.
