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, sexual assault, 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 getting through a difficult time.

Retaining our NPO certification is essential to us continuing that work!

In order to retain that 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.

We are delighted to announce that in 2023, 552 Heroes donated to help us retain our vital NPO status. The TELL community stepped up in one of the most resilient ways possible mental health and helped us to offer more Lifeline shifts, subsidized care, and support to the Ukraine evacuees and community in Japan. We ask for your support to help us meet our 200 Heroes goal in 2024. Your donation ensures we retain our NPO status and continue to help support the growing mental health needs in our community.
