On behalf of Hands On Tokyo, we would like to thank you for your generous donation for the fundraising event, “A Taste for Volunteering 2014,” that was held at the Tokyo American Club. We received over 300 items for the live auction, silent auction and raffle. More than 340 guests were in attendance at the event including the First Lady, Mrs. Akie Abe.

The funds raised will be used to support new and on-going projects in Tokyo as well as Tohoku relief projects. We at Hands On Tokyo are committed to creating more volunteer opportunities for Japanese and non-Japanese volunteers, so that together, we can make a positive difference in our community.
