熊本県は マサチューセッツ州に比べると1/4の土地と人口を有する日本の西側に位置する県です。 阿蘇山や有明海などの雄大な自然に面し、 黒川温泉など1400もの温泉や、スイカなどの農産物で有名です。中心地の熊本市には1470年頃に築城された熊本城がそびえ、世界的に有名になった熊本県のマスコット「くまモン」と並び熊本のシンボルとなっています。
(About Kumamoto)
Kumamoto Prefecture is located in the Kyushu Island of south west Japan with a quarter of the land and population compared to Massachusetts. It is a place filled with the magnificence of nature as displayed by the lush forests, the Ariake Sea and Mount Aso. The crystal clear fresh water has blessed Kumamoto with delicious fresh fruits (such as watermelon, oranges and melons), and has made Kumamoto known as “The Land of Fruit”. From the 1400 wonderful hot springs by the Ariake Sea, to the tranquil scenery of the Suizenji Jojuen Garden, Kumamato is full of places to visit. The most famous landmark is Kumamoto Castle, a majestic castle built approximately 400 years ago by Kato-Kiyomasa. Kumamoto Castle stands as a symbol of Kumamoto, along with the rosy-cheeked bear “Kumamon” – Kumamoto’s mascot who has become popular world-wide.

 

熊本では未だに3万人以上の方が避難生活を送っており、約4万軒の住宅が被害を受けました。支援いただいた義援金は熊本県へ直接届け、未だに避難生活を送っている方や直接被災した方の支援へ使われます。さらに長期支援として、熊本のシンボルである熊本城の再建や1000億円以上の農林水産被害の支援へあてられます。
(Earthquake Relief Efforts)
Kumamoto has been devastated by the recent earthquakes, which have destroyed around 40,000 houses and left over 30,000 people without homes and now living in shelters. The donations we receive will be given directly to Kumamoto Prefecture as part of immediate relief efforts to help those who are suffering in the aftermath of the earthquakes. Longer term, the donations will be used to repair Kumamoto Castle – the historic and cultural symbol of Kumamoto – and support Kumamoto’s agriculture, which suffered damages totaling up to 1000 billion yen.

震災を経験した熊本の子供達の「夢」を応援することが復興支援になると信じて、「The Gift of Memory」Projectを開始しました。今回、熊本の被災した子供たちをアメリカ、ボストンに招待して、「夢」を追いかけてHarvardやMIT、LongyやBurkley音楽大学などで活躍、勉強し続ける現地の方、日本人との交流を通じて「夢」「希望」を持ってもらう機会になればと考えたfundraising企画、第一弾。
ボストン日本総領事館やボストン日本商工会、ボストン熊本県人会に後援いただいております。
今回は、熊本を題材にした「うつくしいひと」の上映と、Boston Chamber Orchestraによるカルテット演奏を予定しています。入場料はdonation形式ですので、ぜひお気軽にお越しください。
また、プロジェクトへの支援金も募集しております。主催するUJAW.Inc及び、ボストン日本商工会はアメリカにおいてtax exempt 501(c)3のNPO団体です。支援金は税金控除対象となり、全て子供達をボストンへ招待するために使われます。ご支援のほど、よろしくお願いします。

For those of you who are staying around campus after the finals, we're holding a charity film screening and live music event on May 28th!
The event is free. Donations at door are appreciated.
-Film-
2016 Japanese short film "The Gift of Memory" (Utsukushii Hito). (English Sub) A nostalgic romance movie filmed in the beautiful city of Kumamoto before the earthquake.
-Music-
Studio Ghibli music by Boston Chamber Orchestra String Quartet (Yes! Themes from "My Neighbor Totoro", "Princess Mononoke" and more!)
There was a huge earthquake in April, 2016 in my hometown, Kumamoto. It's a medium city in Southern Japan (about an hour and a half flight from Tokyo) and children don't usually have chances to see people with big dreams. Furthermore, many students went through difficult time after the disaster, and they need hopes and dreams more than ever. Our goal is to invite students in Kumamoto to Boston, and give them opportunities to have conversations with students and researchers who are working hard to realize their dreams. We hope to support Kumamoto by inspiring young people.

If you can't make it to the event but still want to support our project, you can also donate here: www.binnovative.org/pray-for-kumamoto
(Donation is tax exempt)
