Japan Earthquake Relief Fund

Japan Society has created a disaster relief fund to aid victims of the massive earthquake and tsunamis that struck northeastern Japan.  The Japan Earthquake Relief Fund will work with Japanese and American nonprofit organizations that are on the frontlines of disaster relief and recovery in Japan.  The fund will take advantage of Japan Society’s expertise in bringing together American and Japanese experts to collaborate on social issues, including disaster relief.  One hundred percent of tax-deductible contributions to the fund will go to organizations that directly help victims recover from the devastating effects of the earthquake and tsunamis. Click here to learn more.

On April 30th, VIRGINE hosted a charity relief concert at its headquarters in Chelsea.  VIRGINE is dedicated to helping Japan recover — and you can help, too.  Fifty percent of all ticket and admission sales to Japan Society events made from March 14 through June 30, 2011, including the Japan Society Gallery exhibition Bye Bye Kitty!!! Between Heaven and Hell in Contemporary Japanese Art, will go to the Japan Earthquake Relief Fund.   Click here to learn more.
