【Delivery Report on 49th Rakuten Tasukeai(Love and Aid) Project 】
On March 22 Thursday, our staff delivered rice from Fukushima as a part of the Rakuten Tasukeai (Love+ Aid).
We delivered them to Yumoto Dainijunior high school which is currently being used as a warehouse to stock support goods. The principal of this school who is very dedicated to helping the recovery of the disaster areas, are collaborating with the volunteer groups around them to provide supplies to the places in which they are truly needed.
The principal mentioned, one of the school goals, “Become the one to create, not just receive”. He asks his students to aggressively join in the volunteer activities, and they recently went on a joint volunteer activity with the students from Nasushiobara city to clean up the rubble near the seashore.
He believes that the children’s energy and power will bring up the motivation of other adults who are still feeling down from the disaster. As you can see from this picture, the students helped us with the delivery activity on this day as well.

The Rakuten Tasukeai (Love and Aid) project will end on March 28. We send great appreciation towards the people who have supported this activity throughout the year. We still have a few delivery reports left, so until then, I will keep sharing a full report to the people who have cooperated with us. Rakuten will continue providing different support activities through the Rakuten Social Responsibility Project, and we hope you will continue supporting us. Thank you so much again.
※The Rakuten Tasukeai Project (楽天たすけ愛)project is…. A matching service, where we match the need that the people in the disaster areas have to products sold within the Rakuten EC site. By the cooperation of our Rakuten Ichiba merchants, our customers can make donations through a special price offer and people can receive donations that they really need.
