Matching Campaign to Aid Victims of Japan Earthquakes and Tsunamis

On March 11, 2011, the world watched helplessly as part of a nation was washed away. The devastating effects of the earthquake, subsequent tsunami and possible radiation leak disaster will forever be imprinted in our minds. As the people of Japan continue their search for survivors, we would like to convey hope and help them to rebuild their lives.

The Minami Tamaki LLP law firm and Inspirational Opportunities for Youth and Seniors (IOYS), a nonprofit foundation, will be working together to raise $50,000 in the next 30 days for victims of the Northern Japan earthquakes and tsunamis.


100 percent of the proceeds raised will go towards citizen relief efforts in the most affected areas via the Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund established by the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California.

We are reaching out to you – our family, friends and colleagues. Minami Tamaki and IOYS ask that you help us raise $50,000 to help the citizens of Japan. Please reach into your pocket book and make a donation. No amount is too small.

To encourage your support through this campaign, Minami Tamaki and IOYS pledge to match 50 percent of your donation up to a combined $10,000. We believe our combined efforts will make a difference to those who desperately need our assistance and have lost so much.

JCCCNC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in California that raised over $600,000 in 1995 towards citizen relief efforts following the Great Hanshin Awaji Earthquake that killed over 6,000 people and left over 300,000 people homeless. The donations received helped organize volunteer efforts to get food and water directly to the victims, citizen search efforts, clothing for those that lost their homes, essential supplies for women, children and especially seniors and we helped to feed and rebuild orphanages in Kobe.
