Donations for Japan’s Recovery

large

The unprecedented natural disaster in Japan has left thousands of people homeless with diminishing food and water supplies. They need all the help that we can give, so we have set up a Japan Centre donation with all proceeds being sent to the worst hit areas of Japan directly via the Red Cross. Please give generously!

    I have just donated to this and I hope everyone who shops at Japan Centre does the same.

    I have someone special in Chiba and I know she is afraid of the aftershocks, and of the scientists forecasting big aftershocks for the next few days.
    This is the most shocking and heart-rending thing I have ever seen, and I hope that the figures for the dead aren’t as high as some are predicting.

    Japan will bounce back from this, but I am sure that, right now, they need all of the help and good will that we can offer them.

    Agreed wholeheartedly. I too have friends in various parts of Japan and am giving via Red Cross. On the question of help and goodwill, does anyone know of students or others from the Tohoku region who might be marooned here, or just very worries, and might be pleased in the circumstances to have hospitality from UK people?

    I attended a trainning programme organized by JICA of Japan more than ten years ago. I had spent two days in Sendai city. It was a lovely city. Hope friends in Japan are alright. I have donated some money to Japan’s Recovery. Please donate more. がん ば で

    I have family in Japan so this tragic event has hit me especially hard, and although I know they are safe the aftershocks and the threat of radiation scares me everytime I look at the news.

    It’s times like this that the true character of a country comes out and with all the death and destruction the Japanese people have dealt with in the last few days they pull together as a whole to get through this. The images on the news of people waiting patiently for food and supplies, no looting either, and sharing what little they have with those around them is admirable and I think the rest of the world can look to the Japanese people and learn from them.
    While we can’t all be in Japan helping with the rescue effort we can still help out with donations to the red cross and help the Japanese people recover from this crisis.

    I went to the London store today as I like visiting there to see what new products you have..however the shelves looking as bright and wonderful with lots of goodies and treats..I feel a little downheartend as my friends who are going thru this as well those now camping in emergency shelters are now on restricted food, water, electric, gas and transport *if they can get it*. Ths may sound silly but I almost feel guilt for buying food here when I know that food is being rationed from the country that this food is coming from?? Not sure if I’m being understood. paid just under 7GBP and donated 10GBP…cound’t get it into the little donation pot at the paying point so just handed to cashier who looked shocked…she should’nt really…basically what I wanted to say is..if you can help then please..dig deep and help out anyway possible..and also Japan should stop refusing help from UK!!!!

    A sad and stressful time for Japan. My thoughts go out to those who have lost homes and loved ones.

    Well done to the Japan Centre for motivating people to help. I used the Red Cross Japan appeal website so I could add GiftAid, but it was your e-mail that prompted me to do so.

    Have just returned from 福岡, and am heart-warmed to see so many pro-active appeals and fund-raising back home. Sad, however, to see so much misinformation and doom-mongering in our very irresponsible, heartless western press, who seem unable to resist spinning every story to sell more papers or generate more website hits, regardless of the damage it is doing in Japan itself. You would think there were more integrity left on this side of the world :/

    I would be more than willing to volunteer for any Japan Centre fundraising events if such opportunities arise over the coming weeks – please feel free to mail me if you require extra staff. I have basic GCSE-level Japanese, and can get to London with relative ease.

    Thank you for making it so easy to donate .

    As a long-time japancentre.com customer I’m very happy to contribute – Thanks for setting up the donations link!
    My own business, the Wind Dog Cafe in Shetland, is not making a lot of money right now, and I can’t really afford to give anything away. But what the hell – seeing the devastation and how the Japanese people cope with it so stoically… I am really shaken. I have friends in Japan, and luckily they have all now ‘checked in’ with me to say that they’re OK. Thank the gods! But all my thoughts and best wishes are with the people of Japan right now. I just hope my small contribution can help in some way. And I’ll certainly ask every single one of my customers to make a donation, too!
