A Big Thank You to Toronto!

7 Sep

Thank you so much everyone for coming out to the event yesterday! We had an overwhelming response and we raised over $8,000 for orphans in Japan. The money was sent this morning to the Iwate Learning Hope Fund.

It was a great success! Despite the cool weather, we were surprised by the more than expected turn out. Arts and craft tables were packed with eager children, people enjoyed food and live music. The many E-tegami (painted letters) and Kiri-e (cut out paper) children created will be sent to schools in the Iwate region.

Many thanks to our amazing chefs, Tamio Nionomiya, Shoko Sakiyama, Takahiro Kuroki and Minako Tsutsui for their fantastic food and generosity. And also a BIG THANK YOU to all the volunteers, performers, Marche restaurant, and those who came out and supported this cause.
