2018 Hokkaido Eastern Iburi Earthquake” Disaster Relief Fund Report
We would like to extend our heartfelt sympathies to all those impacted by the recent 2018 Hokkaido Eastern Iburi Earthquake.
To support rapid recovery in the disaster area, Johnny’s Group has set up donation boxes at many of the concerts and theater performances where our artists perform. On behalf of all of our artists and staff, we would like to express our sincere appreciation for your generous support in our fundraising effort.
Although fundraising continues, we have already dispatched Hokkaido native Toma Ikuta to deliver all donations received through October to the disaster area along with relief supplies. By way of relief supplies, the actor brought donations of bath salts and laundry detergent to residents living in temporary housing. These were supplied by two companies in whose commercials he stars, Earth Corporation and The Procter&Gamble Company of Japan Limited. He also brought stationary sets and merchandise from our artists’ events to students at local elementary and middle schools.
Through this visit, your generously donated funds and relief supplies have been handed over directly to those in the disaster area. Details are reported below.
