Support for Victims of the Kumamoto Earthquake

Passion Leaders, operated by the Nexyz.Group Corporation (Tokyo; CEO & Group Representative Takami Kondo; Security Code: 4346), announced establishment of the Kumamoto Earthquake Relief Fund in conjunction with Lions Club International District 330-A (Tokyo; District Governor Masahiko Kondo) and Earthquake Reconstruction Support TSUNAGARI (Motoyoshi-gun, Miyagi Prefecture; Representative Director Mitsunari Katsumata).

The April 14 earthquake in Kumamoto unleashed terrible destruction within region. We extend our heartfelt condolences over those we have lost, as well as offer deepest sympathy to all those affected by this tragedy.

In March 2011, Japan shocked by the Tohoku earthquake tsunami. The following April, Passion Leaders began to do its part to heal Japan by nurturing the growth of Japan's start-up companies and stimulating economic development in the region. Now In its fifth year, Passion Leaders has grown to more than 3,373 members as we work towards becoming the number one management association in Japan in terms of size, activity, and growth rate. We are proud to establish a relief fund for the Kumamoto region as we continue to pursue the Passion Leaders founding principles.

The support organizations are a joint effort between the Lions Club--which is recognized by the UN, and is the largest volunteer organization in the world--and TSUNAGARI--a Passion Leaders TOHOKU Branch member.
Lions Club International is active in 206 countries, with 46,075 clubs established world-wide. District 330A in Tokyo has about 5, 000 members enrolled, and serves as a leading representative of Lions Club in Japan. In keeping with the Lions Club purpose, "service is a Lions Club member's life and duty," members donate their own resources to cover their volunteer services. The Lions Club allocates 100 percent of donations received to the activities it supports.
TSUNAGARI offered aid during the Tohoku disaster, including collecting donations, coordinating donations of materials, and performing a host of other relief activities such as aiding in the recovery of remains and management of emergency refuges. During the August 2014 Hiroshima landslides, TSUNAGARI aided in sediment removal, as well as the removal and cleaning of affected houses. TSUNAGARI is an organization that is active where people need support the most--on-site in disaster zones. In fact, they are already contributing by managing two shelters (one 400-person shelter and one 1400- person shelter) in the Kumamoto region.
Passion Leaders intends to forward graciously offered donations to these two organizations, putting money towards vital earthquake relief activities.

We are accepting donations towards Kumamoto earthquake relief efforts as indicated below.
