Donate for Tohoku from March 10 & 11 to DOUBLE your contribution!

TAMFGG-2015-2x4-horizontal-300x167

JETAA USA is supporting the Taylor Anderson Memorial Foundation for another donation drive that starts when the clock strikes midnight in Japan on March 11. GlobalGiving has once again offered to match these donations!

Last year, the JET Community helped raise nearly $50,000 for the 311 relief and recovery effort. We hope to continue the success of last year’s “JETs Rally for Tohoku” campaign and hope you will join us in showing your ongoing support for Tohoku by going to the Global Giving website on March 11th to make a donation that will be matched.

Online donation drive

Donation website: www.globalgiving.org/fundraisers/jets-rally-for-tohoku

Starts: 12:00 midnight Japan time on 3/11 (11 am EDT, March 10; 8 am PDT, etc)

Ends: When we reach maximum matching amounts ($30,000 total, $15,000 per project)

Background

Three years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami and the devastation in Tohoku has largely faded from the news. However, so much remains to be done for the survivors and TAMF has been partnering with a number of organizations in Japan to provide relief and help the people of Tohoku build a strong and vibrant future.

TAMF has provided funding to the following projects:

For more information on TAMF, please go to http://www.taylorandersonmemorialfund.org/, their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/taylorandersonmemorialfund, or watch the NHK interview with Jeanne and Andy at https://vimeo.com/86637051.

JETAA USA is proud to partner with TAMF to carry on the support JETs and JET alumni have shown for Japan and the people of Tohoku ever since March 2011.

Details

All donations up to $1,000 per individual donor made to the Taylor Anderson Memorial Fund beginning on March 11th Japan time will be matched by Global Giving through their Japan Match Global Giving program. (Global Giving will charge a 15% facilitation fee to cover their costs, which donors may choose to cover if they wish so that their full donation amount goes to TAMF. See the page for details.)

LIVE YOUR DREAM: The Taylor Anderson Story

Posted by admin

(From JETAA USA: http://www.jetaausa.com/2012/04/05/live-your-dream-the-taylor-anderson-story-2/)

Filmmaker Regge Life started a Kickstarter page to raise funds and promote his new project, a documentary on Taylor Anderson. They reached their initial fund raising goals in just 17 days, but are hoping for continued pledges so they can compose original music, make a Japanese version and kickstart distribution in both countries. He reached out to the JET alum community to both thank us for our support and let us know he’s continuing to move forward. Regge also mentioned his hope of expanding the focus to include Monty and a few other ALTs.

If you are looking for a different way to bring awareness to the JET community, the JET mission, and how JET relationships with their hometowns in Japan can have a deep and lasting impression, please consider pledging to this project. For details and to pledge, please visit the LIVE YOUR DREAM page on Kickstarter.

This film is a story about Taylor Anderson and all the young people who travel the world trying to make a difference. Taylor was an extraordinary American who dedicated herself to teaching Japanese children, living her dream right up to the events of March 11, 2011. The earthquake and tsunami in Japan was a disaster that no one could have expected. In my 21 years of working on Japan based projects, I had witnessed earthquakes, but never the devastation of a tsunami.
