Charity search strikes bad note with local musician

Charity search strikes bad note with local musician: "Concert pianist Kim Hayashi determined the best way he could help the tsunami relief, was through his gift of music. So Hayashi and other local musicians organized a benefit concert.

But it turned out that the difficult part was deciding who they would give the proceeds to.

'It was very important that we find someone that was reputable, and someone who wasn't just doing emergency relief, but more long-term,' said Hayashi.

One of the charities Hayashi looked at was Feed the Children, but, he says, they told him that a lot of their money doesn't necessarily go towards feeding children."
