While the North American anime community is raising money for relief efforts for Japan, Tokyopop CEO Stu Levy has been volunteering to bring supplies to those affected by the March 11 earthquake (Tōhoku Chihō Taiheiyō-oki Jishin) and tsunami.

Levy posted about his volunteer efforts on Twitter this past week, and he provided a short, firsthand perspective of the damages caused by the tragedy.
