Event Features Include….


Panel Discussion: Tohoku Recovery 

Three Years Later...

 & Best Practices for Preparedness
 
It is difficult to predict when disasters will happen, but the consequences of disasters are predictable. Efforts to prepare yourself, your family, your workplace and your neighborhood will go a long way in improving the response and recovery of your community.

Hear from our special panel of experts to understand the recovery and rebuilding of livelihoods and security in Tohoku on the Third Anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami. Moderated by JASSW Chair Sam Shepherd, the panel includes Dr. Charles Aanenson, CEO of Peace Winds America, and Seattle Times reporter Sandi Doughton, who recently returned from the Tohoku area. Also joining us will be the Fukushima Kenjinkai President Patsy Yamada.

FEATURE FILM  "LIGHT UP NIPPON"

日本を照らした奇跡の花火

 
LIGHT UP NIPPON documents the trials and triumphs of dedicated volunteers led by Yoshitake Takada.  Just five months after the devastating Great East Japan Earthquake,  they lit up the skies in 10 locations over the Tohoku region of Japan with fireworks to buoy the spirits of the victims.  

This documentary takes you on a whimsical  and fantastic journey, where these magnificent  fireworks displays captured the thoughts, prayers, hopes and  dreams of so many people in Japan.         

 
 (For 30 minutes, starting at 2PM)

Your JASSW Event Sponsorship goes to the Tohoku Disaster Recovery Fund that will benefit.......

 



Te No Hirani Taiyou No Ie Project

 http://taiyounoie.org/


“Taiyo No Ie,” located in Miyagi prefecture, was built as retreat housing for the Tohoku victims. 

These houses  were built with beautiful Japanese wood and use a natural energy source, providing an eco friendly facility where the people can gather and feel safe.  We would like to raise funds for equipment like camping tents or sleeping bags for these guests.

Event Sponsorship Opportunities
 
Japan America Society of the State of Washington will put net proceeds of the sponsored amount toward the Tohoku Disaster Recovery Fund.  This year, funds will go to NPO “Taiyo No Ie Project” to purchase needed materials and furnishings. 
As an example, a procurement goal of $3000 provides camping tents* to the “Taiyo No Ie Project” for retreat housing in Fukushima.    
 
We hope that we can obtain your support in reaching this goal to send them items from Seattle. 

We have the following two levels of sponsorship for the event.
