A big thank you to all heroes who played a key role in helping TELL retain our vital NPO status last year. Their contribution helped ensure people made it through to tomorrow and had an opportunity for a brighter future.
This year we renew our call to heroes who will support us in continuing our NPO status.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to bring about unprecedented health and economic challenges, especially for the most vulnerable, which have already seen an increase in suicide rates within Japan.
TELL’s Lifeline and Outreach services provide critical support for people dealing with suicidal thoughts, relationship breakups, domestic violence, rape survivors, workplace issues, bullying, loneliness, and gender issues, among others. We believe having someone to talk to when you are alone or feeling vulnerable can make all the difference in making it through the night.
Retaining our NPO license is essential to us continuing that work!
In order to retain that license each year, the Tokyo Government requires us to have at least 200 people donate a minimum of ¥3,000. We cannot provide any enticement or incentive, nor can that donation be accompanied by an exchange of goods or services. This means the financial support we receive from our annual fundraising events does not count towards achieving the minimum of 200 donations even though that highly appreciated support is essential in funding our ongoing work.
In 2021 208 Heroes donated to help us retain our vital NPO status. The TELL community stepped up in one of the most resilient ways possible for mental health. Please donate once again to help us meet our 200 Heroes goal in 2022. Your donation ensures we retain our NPO status and continues to help support our community.
