Participation fee: 500 yen. Any proceeds that remain will be donated to Second Harvest or used for future volunteering events. (If you have any issues with reserving tickets, or don't have the funds, please contact us immediately. No one will be turned away.) Although participation in our first event is limited, please share and spread the word as we plan to set up another Day of Service in the future. If the event is successful, we hope to expand it to a monthly initiative.

Sponsored by Democrats Abroad Japan, this event is a non-partisan, non-political gathering aimed at supporting organizations that provide resources for at-risk communities and developing a unique interconnected network to enhance that support going forward. Instead of viewing at-risk communities as individual entities, we are encouraging ally-ship, which is the view that communities can enhance their ability to serve and protect their members by creating alliances with one another.


We welcome individuals and community leaders to join our Day of Service, which will serve as a kick-off for this movement. On Feb 18, 2017, in collaboration with Second Harvest, we will give participants an opportunity to support their cause - creating a Food Safety Net in Japan by delivering food to children's homes, single-mother shelters, centers for the disabled as well as many other welfare organizations and individuals in need.
