Cultural News seeks $30,000 donation in 2021
In 1998, Cultural News was started by Shige Higashi to promote Japanese culture in Southern California. Due to Corona pandemic, the format of Cultural News had to change from monthly paper to weekly PDF. But the mission of Cultural News remains the same.
Non-profit organization Cultural News Association has been formed to support the mission of Cultural News. Your contribution would be appreciated at https://www.culturalnews.com/donation
