Become a TELL Hero

In order to retain our NPO license each year, the Tokyo Government requires us to have at least 100 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 100 donations even though that highly appreciated support is essential in funding our ongoing work.
