Japanese Chamber of Commerce asks donation to Japan Disaster Relief

March 14, 2011

Re: Japan Disaster Relief

From: Toshio Handa, President

Dear Friends:

We, as the Japanese Chamber of Commerce Foundation, are working together with UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) in their efforts to collect for the Japan Disaster Relief Fund.

The death toll is expected to exceed 10,000 with thousands still missing. The hard-hit area does not have enough food or water and has no heat.

The Chief Trade Minister of Japan warned of possible power outages, even in Tokyo. Efforts are continuing to contain the danger of the nuclear power plant in Fukushima.

Many children are impacted by this disaster; they suffer from loss of shelter, supplies, and services, while others have been left as orphans.

We will accept donations on behalf of UNICEF until the end of April and then present all donations to the UNICEF Los Angeles Office.

Please make check payable to “U.S. Fund for UNICEF” with the note “Japan Disaster Fund” on it. The check should be sent to this office at the letterhead address.

Your donation will be tax exempted. Please use your cancelled check as evidence for tax purposes.

Your generous assistance is greatly appreciated.
