AJET Relief and Donations
AJET would like to announce that we will be collecting money to specifically address JET needs in areas affected by the earthquake and tsunami. We also encourage donations to relief efforts directed at the community at large (JEN: http://tinyurl.com/4sp8mba; Peace Winds Japan: http://www.peace-winds.org/en/; or Good Neigbours: http://tinyurl.com/4f6gtas), however the AJET Relief Fund will provide donations directly to JETs in affected areas, with advice from Prefectural Advisors in prefectures such as Akita, Chiba, Fukushima, Ibaraki, Iwate and Miyagi to ensure that this money is used in the most efficient way possible.
As the relief effort is still in its early stages, the needs of affected JETs have not yet been fully assessed. National AJET expects to address some of these needs as they arise; shelter, food and water will be top priorities. The AJET Relief fund will also be used to help JETs rebuild their lives after the immediate danger has passed. For updates or questions about the distribution of AJET Relief funds, make sure to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
To donate to the AJET Relief Fund:
Visit your local bank to make a bank transfer (furikomi).
Bank: Japan Post Bank (ゆうちょ銀行)
Account name: “AJET Relief.” （AJETリリーフ）
(If you have never made a furikomi transfer before, please see more complete instructions at the end).
Presently, the AJET Relief Fund is only accepting monetary donations. Information on volunteering during your spring break, as well as organisations to contact, will be announced shortly.
AJET would like to encourage JETs in affected areas to consult the Couch Surfing website http://www.couchsurfing.org for their accommodation needs at present. If no suitable accommodation is available, please contact your National AJET Representative.
