Japan Relief Efforts
On March 11, 2011 an earthquake and tsunami struck Japan devastating the local agriculture, economy and lives of those who lived there. In the aftermath of the disaster many people perished and for those that survived, their lives have been forever changed. To date there are still hundreds of thousands of people living in temporary shelters entirely dependant on the relief efforts of local governments and charities such as the Red Cross.
As the world witnessed these horrible events several local businesses and individuals felt compelled to do their part and assist those in need in whatever way they could. With the shared purpose of raising funds to support those affected by this disaster Japan311.ca was borne.
Japan311.ca has undertaken several fundraising initiatives including selling relief T-Shirts for $20, coordinating fundraising events at various local establishments including the Golden Spike Pub and have accepted the generous donations of corporate contributors. Japan311.ca is committed to raising funds to be donated directly to the Red Cross Japan in support of their relief efforts there. Japan311.ca is operating under the consent of the Red Cross and is contributing all proceeds from fundraising efforts directly to the cause.
The road to recovery in the affected region will be long and difficult as many small villages and towns have been completely destroyed. It is anticipated that it will take several years for the region to simply begin the process of restoration and renewal. To support the long term recovery effort Japan311.ca has established a legacy contribution plan in concert with Japanada Brand ensuring that support donations will be ongoing and the memory of those lost will not be forgotten.
We urge you to contribute whatever you can to the relief effort in Japan and ask that you kindly donate through Japan311.ca, purchase a relief T-Shirt, attend a fundraising function or donate directly to the Red Cross.
Thank you for your generosity,
The Japanada Brand Team
