    Gov. Scott Walker's wife, Tonette, is asking state residents to donate to a new relief effort for Japan. She spoke exclusive with FOX6's Myra Sanchick on Thursday.

    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.

    "I think for everyone it’s kind of one of those moments we remember. When you see the pictures and the devastation, just wanting to reach out and help them and to know how to do that. I think it was just the right thing to do," said Mrs. Walker.
