ABOUT THE FUNDRAISER: http://bit.ly/eY8gv1
Japan Society has created a disaster relief fund to aid victims of the massive earthquake and tsunamis that struck northeastern Japan. The Japan Earthquake Relief Fund will work with Japanese and American nonprofit organizations that are on the frontlines of disaster relief and recovery in Japan.
The fund will take advantage of Japan Society’s expertise in bringing together American and Japanese experts to collaborate on social issues, including disaster relief.
One hundred percent of tax-deductible contributions to the fund will go to organizations that directly help victims recover from the devastating effects of the earthquake and tsunamis.
