BENEFITING: U S TOKYO ENGLISH LIFE LINE INC
Ben Perkins wrote -Next Saturday (May 28th) I will be taking part in the Annual Tell Runathon! This year the event is held in partnership with Second Harvest Japan who, as Japans only food bank, do amazing work delivering food to children's homes, single-mother shelters, centers for the disabled as well as many other welfare organisations and individuals in need. Japan's image as a wealthy, developed, middle class country is widespread but in reality there are approximately 20 million people living below the poverty line. In contrast to this, Japan’s self-sufficiency rate is at just 39%, while 17.8 million tons of food are destroyed every year. TELL is dedicated to providing effective support and counseling services to Japan's international community and its increasing mental health needs. Both these charities provide essential resources to those who need them most. By sponsoring me we can help them continue in their work. For anything you can spare to help me reach my fundraising goal I will be incredibly grateful!
