1. How NY Japanese-American Lions Club Charities, Inc.’s is related to the person(s) you are raising funds for

The NY Japanese-American Lions Club Charities, Inc.’s is an organization primarily run by Japanese residents and Japanese Americans living in New York. In response to the recent earthquake in the Hokuriku region, the Japanese community in New York has initiated a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for fellow compatriots who are affected by the disaster.

2. NY Japanese-American Lions Club Charities, Inc.’s transfer plan to get the funds from your GoFundMe to the intended recipient(s)

The funds will be deposited into the bank account of the NY Japanese-American Lions Club Charities, Inc.’s, and subsequently, they will be transferred via wire transfer to the sister organization in Japan, Lions Club International District 334-D, Hokuriku Region Cabinet.

3. How the funds will be spent

Raised fund shall be used to purchase food, linens, sheets, toiletries, necessities and so forth to support people affected by the disaster.

On January 1, 2024, a magnitude 7.6 earthquake occurred off the coast of the Noto Peninsula.
The Noto region suffered severe damage. As of February 8, more than 240 people have died, more than 40,000 homes have been damaged, and 37,500 homes are still without water supply, and more than 13,000 people are taking shelter in evacuation centers. It is expected that it will take until around April to resolve the water outage.
Roads have been cut off throughout the disaster areas, and the acceptance of volunteers has only begun this month. It is expected that it will still take time for lifelines to be restored.
The New York Japanese-American Lions Club has established the Japan, Noto Earthquake Relief Fund. This fund is the source of necessary supplies in disaster areas.
Funds will be wired to Lions Club organizations in the affected areas and will be used to provide food, linens, toiletries, daily necessities, medical supplies, and counseling costs to people living in evacuation centers.
In any disaster Lions Clubs and members all over the world come together to help in whatever way they can. The Lions Clubs worldwide made up the largest service organization in the world and our motto is “WE SERVE”.
We appreciate your cooperation.
