Voices from our supporters

We wanted to support an organization where we could see the people doing the work,
and the faces of people receiving assistance.

Since the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011, we have donated to Katariba the proceeds from sales of beer at the Yebisu Beer Festival. In 2012, we visited the Collaboration School in the disaster affected area as it had just begun its activities, and felt even more strongly that we wanted to help the people in need. We thought that exchanges with the Katariba staff and children of the Tohoku area would inspire our employees and offer an opportunity to visit the area, thus raising awareness for making societal contributions.

The children give us the motivation
to keep working hard.

In the months of February and March since 2014, we have offered a limited-time-only meal with 20 yen per meal donated to the area struck by the Great East Japan Earthquake. What we do is simple: serve our customers good food, take care of their 20 yen donation, and pass it on to Katariba. We chose this system as we wanted to provide continued support. We have had numerous opportunities to learn about the situations of middle and high school children in the disaster-stricken areas, and the growth of those children gives us the motivation to keep working hard.

We want to channel the efforts of each beautician
towards a greater cause.

The One Tenth Project is an association of beauty salons centered around Shizuoka Prefecture. After the Great East Japan Earthquake, we found ourselves wondering “Isn’t there something we beauty salons can do?” As a result, we established the One Tenth Project, and began running Child Charity Cuts events in which we provide haircuts to children and donate the proceeds. It is important for us that, through Katariba, the donations raised by these Charity Cuts go directly towards supporting children in areas affected by natural disasters.
