HVA for Japan

Weeks have past and even though we’re hearing less and less every day, the Japanese are still struggling with their shortage of water, food and electricity…not to mention the nuclear failures at Fukushima.

Therefore, in collaboration with Japanese exchange students and Japanese teachers, a fundraising day will be held on Wednesday the 20th of April.

On that day there are multiple ways for you to contribute:

- Origami folding.

Learn to fold traditional origami cranes.

- Buy DELICIOUS homemade cookies…mMMMmMmmMMMMmmmMMmmm…..

- Calligraphy.

Learn how to write your name written in either Hiragana or Katakana, two out of 3 alphabets.

Main event: Film screening of the award-winning Japanese animation movie ‘Grave of the fireflies’.

Fees will be asked for the activities named above and will be donated to school in Akita, Japan. This school has dedicated itself to helping the victims.

More information regarding this event can be found on 'Movies for Japan' Facebook:
