Would you like to be a Santa Claus, and bring smiles to children this holiday season?

Hands On Tokyo has launched the "Be a Santa Project,” with the hope of bringing smiles to the faces of many children during this holiday season. This project provides holiday gifts for children living in children's homes, shelter for single mothers, and children suffering from incurable diseases.

Your donations will be carefully used to purchase holiday gifts (toys, books, snacks, and other items that children will enjoy) for Hands On Tokyo's "Be a Santa Project,” and to cover the cost of packaging and shipping.

Due to the schedule of sending holiday gifts, the deadline for the first round of donations is December 10, 2023.

Our goal is to send holiday gifts to a total of 200 children, ranging from infants and toddlers to elementary, junior high, and high school students (a donation of 3,000 yen will provide a gift for one or two children).

■Community partners we plan to deliver to:

*Children's home
Gifts will be given to children in children's home who live away from their families, due to parental abuse or neglect.

*Shelter for single mothers
Gifts will be given to children in shelters for single mothers, after running away from home due to domestic violence.

*Facility for children with incurable diseases, and their families
Gifts will be given to children suffering from incurable diseases, and who are hospitalized for long periods of time.


For each donation of 3,000 yen, we will be able to procure one or two gifts.


We will gift toys, books, candies, and other items that children will love.
