Tonette Walker to raise funds for Japan relief



MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's wife, Tonette, is asking state residents to donate to a new relief effort for Japan.


Tonette Walker says the Wisconsin-Chiba Japan Relief Project will help those affected by the earthquake and tsunami that hit northeast Japan on March 11. She is the honorary chair of the relief efforts and asked residents to show solidarity with Japan by donating to the project.

The effort is part of a sister city agreement between Wisconsin and the Japanese state of Chiba that's existed since 1990.

Proceeds will go to the Japanese Red Cross.
