Dear Friends

Tomoe Project

友へ(Tomo e) =巴(Tomoe): ”TOMOE” has a double meaning.
This pronunciation has two meanings, “To/For friends” and a traditional Japanese symbol which means “New things mixed together with existing things to make another form.”

We are from the Tomoe Project, a part of the Noah Ka Oi Surf, which intends to establish into a non-profit organization, dedicated to worldwide relief aid. Noah Ka Oi Surf is a for-profit organization, established by an enthusiastic professional surfer Noah Shimabukuro, who is supporting us in the operation of this charitable project as his commitment to social responsibility. As you might know, people have lost their home and families, and they are still suffering from food deprivation and freezing temperatures. People need support now, but as the recovering process will take very long, they need long-term continuing support. A group of Japanese surfers, residing in San Diego felt powerless and useless, yet we have decided to coalesce and organize donations to support the affected people and volunteers in Japan on a long-term basis.

We are currently selling donation goods in which 100% of the proceeds will go to help victims of the most recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. All money raised from this project will be given to the U.S.-Japan Council, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization who promises donors to send and use 100% of our monetary donation to the affected people and volunteers in the Tohoku area in Japan (or non-profit organizations in Japan who actually go out to the affected area and do volunteer activities). After researching this issue, we are confident that the U.S.-Japan Council has the contacts and initiative to make a direct and lasting difference in the Japan relief effort. You can find out more about the U.S.-Japan Council at http://www.usjapancouncil.orgWhen needed, we can provide a donation receipt from them.

Thank you very much for your support!
Cordially,

Tomoe Project
