Fall 2015 Charity Events – Get Your Tickets & Save the Dates!

Have you decided which Fall 2015 Charity Events you will attend? There are so many to choose from, but I highly recommend the following four events which have been announced.  Some you can buy tickets for now, other are “save the date”.  Attending one or many of these events is a great way to contribute while having fun with new and old friends. Events later in November and December which will be added as information becomes available. If you have other charity events to recommend, please submit here.  Please consider attending at least one of the following events this Fall to support the great work these charities do for our local and global communities.  Remember give back, and/or pay it forward. If you are looking to get more involved in a charity by volunteering, then check out all the great opportunities in Tokyo.

Fall 2015 Charity Events

2. Shine On! Kids –  September 26th – The Yellow Brick Road for an Extravaganza in the Emerald City! –  This year Shine On! Kids invites you to Follow The Yellow Brick Road for an Extravaganza in the Emerald City! Saturday, September 26th, 2015.  Join this great night with music, great food and amazing auction items and prizes to support a great charity that helps so many children in Japan.

ShineOn! Kids dedicated to making life better for kids with cancer and other serious illnesses in Japan and their families. Shine On! Kids (formerly The Tyler Foundation) was incorporated as a Non-Profit Organization under the laws of Japan in July 2006 and has been supported entirely by private and corporate donations. The creation of the organization was inspired by the smiles and courage of Mark and Kim Ferris’ son Tyler, who spent much of his short life battling a very difficult-to-cure kind of leukemia. After they lost Tyler, they realized there were many ways to take Tyler’s struggles and their experience and create something positive for families going through what they had endured. While the level of medical treatment in Japan is one of the best in the world, the area of patient support is still relatively undeveloped. The organization hopes to redefine the concept of patient support in Japan to create a complete patient support system: from the moment of diagnosis, throughout treatment and even after discharge from the hospital.
