As more and more news develops regarding the tragic situation in Japan, it is also heartwarming to see communities and organizations join the relief effort. JETAA Hawaii is coordinating with the Japan-America Society of Hawaii (JASH), a nonprofit organization in the local community with many ties to Japan, to provide monetary donations. If you are interested in making a donation on behalf of JETAA Hawaii, please select which organization you would like your donation to go to, and follow the instructions:

1) Donate to the Japanese Red Cross Society. The Japanese Red Cross Society serves many people throughout Japan and operates hospitals and blood collection agencies. Please make checks payable to: Japan-America Society of Hawaii, and in the notes section, write “Japan Earthquake Relief Fund.” We will be accepting cash or check donations at the JETAA Hawaii Kujira Hike this Sunday, March 20, 9 a.m. hike at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail; 11:30 a.m. lunch at Kona Brewing Company. Please RSVP via the link in the invite that was previously sent. All donors will receive a tax letter from the Japan-America Society of Hawaii, and 100% of all donations will go directly to the Japanese Red Cross Society.

2) Donate to Sendai Ikuei Gakuen. This school has a branch office in Honolulu called I-Lion Hawaii School which is a JASH member. The school is collecting donations to provide to the people of Sendai and Japan and has asked JASH to collect these funds on their behalf. Please make checks payable to: Japan-America Society of Hawaii, and in the notes section, write “Sendai Ikuei Gakuen.” We will be accepting cash or check donations at the JETAA Hawaii Kujira Hike this Sunday, March 20, 9 a.m. hike at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail; 11:30 a.m. lunch at Kona Brewing Company. Please RSVP via the link in the invite that was previously sent.

We encourage you to show some support from JETAA Hawaii, as Japan and its people have a special place in our hearts.
