“For some months now we have been discussing replacing the outside play apparatus for our children. The largest challenge is the funding for this. With your donation we can now make our upgrade plans happen. Thank you very much.” These were the sentiments shared by Seibi Home orphanage in Tokyo when THE J TEAM & FRIENDS IN CHARITY presented them with their 50% of funds raised in the Silent Auction for Japan.
Bids on this event closed on 13th July as partners and gathered in Tokyo to mark the fifth anniversary of THE J TEAM Japan-specialist DMC.
It delights that this event brought like-minded collaborators together to raise a stunning 622,800JPY for Seibi Home and for Seikazoku-no-Ie orphanage in Osaka. Both have a soft spot in the heart of THE J TEAM, and both have worked with us on CSR projects over the history of our Team.
We thank all partners that provided lots for the auction. And we are most grateful to the bidders – many of whom later told us of their personal connection to the two homes.
May each and every youngster enjoy their share of the donation, and we look forward to the next five years with you!
