Everybody has likely heard about the magnitude 9.0 Earthquake that hit Japan followed by the Tsunami. What you might not have heard is that the Evernew Headquarters building in Tokyo also suffered severe damage as a result. All employees are ok working hard to recover.
With relief supplies pouring in from all over the world, the many NGO and NPOs helping displaced people do not have the man power to sort and deliver the supplies. As a result, the METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry) has identified companies in each industry as agents to help in receiving and distributing relief supplies.
As a designated agent for METI, Evernew is working to accept those items most in need, especially blankets, sleeping bags, tents, food, and other items critical for survival. In order to help facilitate this effort and ensure your donations reach the needy as quickly as possible, we ask that you please observe the following guidelines:
1) All relief supplies be new.
For safety reason, we are not allowed to pass along used supplies that could be damaged or possibly contaminated in order to protect everybody.
2) Please send your donations directly to the Evernew headquarters in Japan:
Evernew HQ has to be prepared for any receiving shipment, so please contact Takashi Fukuchi before sending any supplies to Japan.
3) Each box should contain only one type of item. The effort for customs and Evernew to sort all the generous donations if mixed up in each box would be prohibitive. So, for example, please sort and label your donations like:
Box 1 = Tents
Box 2 = Sleeping Bags
Thank you for your help in this time of need.
