Several fundraising events will take place within the next month, under the same umbrella, Support Japan 2011 – Ganbare Nippon (which loosely means: Never give up Japan).

The HOPE LOVE JAPAN family-friendly daytime fundraising event hopes to raise $15,000. All proceeds willbe donated directly to the Canadian Red Cross, for exclusive relief efforts in Japan.

WHAT: HOPE LOVE JAPAN – an afternoon inspired by Japanese tradition, with music by Masako Hockey and Satomi Edwards, tea service and Japanese blessing.

There will also be a photo-booth set up with photographer Véronique da Silva, and a children’s craft area hosting a 1000 cranes for Japan craft project, as well as a Support Japan 2011 t-shirt sale.
