ARTS for HOPE (2011 to present)
Launched in 2011, ARTS for HOPE is a project aimed at providing spiritual healing to the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake through art. When ARTS for HOPE requested supplies, such as sketchbooks and crayons, through the Citizen Volunteer Club, the Citizen Group assembled 30 boxes of support materials. In July 2012, 18 Group companies donated art supplies worth \400,000. Since then, the Group has continued its support. Leading up to the fifth anniversary of the disaster, the Group participated in the “This is where I live” memorial exhibition, which toured areas from northeast Japan to Tokyo’s JR Ueno Station from January to March 2016. Moreover, the Group received a letter of thanks for its support over the past five years. Going forward, the Group will continue to support the recovery from the devastation caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
