TELL Japan

TELL needs your help

Published on March 29, 2018

TELL has been serving the community for 45 years, but its ability to continue doing so is in serious jeopardy.

TELL needs your help. I mean really needs your help.

After 45 years of committed Lifeline and clinical services to the foreign community in Japan -and an even greater demand for mental health support as we approach 2020 – we find ourselves needing your help now more than ever before.

TELL is facing a cash flow crunch as we transition our funding model from a principally events-based approach to a more broadly based and flexible strategy. We know the number of community organizations needing your support is greater than ever; a fact we acknowledge and celebrate. At the same time, the available funds in the donor community has remained relatively flat or even declined over the past few years.

To tell the truth, our cash flow has become a major problem. While we have begun to put in place a new business plan to address these issues and cut our spending to the absolute minimum, we need your support to help navigate the next three to six months.

No amount is too small, nor is any level of volunteer or pro bono support. You may want to support a particular person, program, or project. You might want to become a sponsor, make a monthly micro-donation of ¥300 or more, or give a one-time injection of much needed cash. You may want to have TELL deliver an EAP program or workshops for your team. Honestly, it all counts.

We are holding a Town Hall event on Wednesday April 4th, and invite you to attend. Please help us spread the word, because without your support, TELL will be forced to close its doors in the next few months. It’s that simple.

Time & Date: Wed 4th April, 19:00 – 20:30

Venue: Tokyo Union Church

(Also streamed live via TELL’s Facebook page)

We will emerge from this a stronger and better organization. But we need your support so we can better support you, and those who live in the shade of anxiety.

Donate now via our donate page, or by joining our micro-donations campaign.
