To readers of Monthly Cultural News
Amid COVID-19 outbreak, we had to suspend publishing Monthly Cultural News due to all Japanese cultural events were suspended at cultural centers and art museums.
We started publishing Weekly Cultural News as substitute for the monthly publication.
Cultural News has been depended on subscription incomes and we face financial difficulties now because monthly subscriptions are stopped.
Beside publishing Weekly Cultural News, we send more times to support Japanese speaking communities in Los Angeles because they need Japanese language information to understand this crisis accurately.
Japanese language email blasts and video meeting arrangements are found at https://digest.culturalnews.com
We need $30,000 fund right away to continue current projects in 2020- 2021 and resume publishing Monthly Cultural News. We have raised $7,200 as of Aug. 8. Your continuous supports are appreciated via https://culturalnews.com/donation
If you may have any questions about our projects and donation campaign, please contact Cultural News Editor Shige Higashi via: firstname.lastname@example.org or (213) 819-4100.
