Posted by admin

Online Shopping Fundraiser

Although it has been over a year since the earthquakes, Kumamoto is still rebuilding and can use all the help that they can get. As a result, Florida JETAA is partnering with 20 LulaRoe independent retailers to raise funds for Kumamoto's earthquake recovery. For every purchase made through LulaRoeForKumamoto from June 11th to June 13th, a portion of that purchase will be donated by the LuLaRoe retailers, and then 100% will be matched by Global Giving! In addition to sharing this event with your friends, family, and network, please join LulaRoeForKumamoto to learn more about this clothing line and how to shop (see pinned post)--you must be a member of the group to shop.

Volunteers Wanted! JETAA FL 2017 Tampa Natsumatsuri

Posted by admin

Sat. June 24 | 5-10 PM | Christ the King Church,  821 S Dale Mabry Hwy, Tampa

Our chapter's flagship event, the Tampa Natsumatsuri, is only one month away! Over the last 12 years, this community organized festival coordinated by JETAA FL has continued to grow in size. Last year, we had an estimated 800 guests visit!

Since this year marks the 30th Anniversary of the JET Program, we want to make it even better -- but we need help from our JET Alumni!

Interested volunteers contact Tom Gregorich, Festival Director: Tampanatsumatsuri@gmail.com

Why is this important?

A core goal of the JET Program is for former participants to continue sharing  their love and knowledge of Japan with people around the world. As a Chapter, we not only strive to create a home for JET alumni, but also provide opportunities for the greater community to engage with Japanese culture.

Tampa Natsumatsuri, under the leadership of alumni John McGee and now Tom Gregorich, has been doing this for the past 12 years. The festival aims to create the real atmosphere of a Japanese summer festival with treats, crafts, dances, martial arts performances, cosplay, and traditional festival games. Tickets for the games are sold at an extremely low price, and admission is always FREE!

10% of festival proceeds go to a Japan-related charity, such as relief and reconstruction for the Great East Japan Earthquake (2011) and the Kumamoto Earthquake (2016). 5% goes to JETAA FL to help with our basic operations, and the rest goes to funding the festival

We'd prefer people to help with full slots, but if you can only dedicate a certain amount of time, we will find a way to work around it! Read on to see how you can help.

Volunteer Slots

Set Up

We're looking for people to help with set up from 3 PM - 5 PM! 

Coffee Jelly

We need someone to make, bring, and sell Coffee Jelly! This is something that JETAA-FL has sold at Natsumatsuri for the last few years. It's really easy to make, and we can give you the recipe, but we're really short-handed this year. Of course, you will be compensated for the cost of materials! 5-9PM (or until it sells out). 

Games

We need volunteers to run game tables during the festival (5 to 9pm). You don't need to bring anything but your enthusiasm! We have all the materials, and can teach you the games on site.

Game examples:

  • wanage 輪投げ
  • shodo 書道
  • omikuji おみくじ
  • kingyo sukui 金魚釣り堀
  • otedaruma お手玉
  • yoyo sukui ヨーヨーつり
  • kids' omocha sukui おもちゃ釣りゲーム
  • origami 折り紙
  • yukata try-on 浴衣
  • shuriken showdown 手裏剣ショウダウン
  • hanetsuki (badminton) 羽根突き
  • daruma otoshi ダルマ落とし
  • ohajiki おはじき
  • taketonbo 竹とんぼ

よろしくおねがいします!
