Toronto Bakes for Japan is proud to support the Japanese Red Cross Society. 100% of all proceeds from this initiative will be donated directly to the Japanese Red Cross Society.
From their website: “All the fund received under this account will be transferred to the Distribution Committee, which is formed around the local government of the disaster-affected prefecture and to be distributed directly among the affected population of earthquake and tsunami.”
We deeply respect the Red Cross for its values and humanitarian efforts around the world. The Japanese Red Cross Society has over 60 medical teams on the ground in the affected areas and they are providing first aid and emergency medical assistance, essential relief items and assisting in evacuations and search and rescue operations. Check out this video of an interview with Japanese Red Cross spokesperson, Sayaka Matsumoto giving an inside look into their relief efforts.
From our end, we want to keep the process as transparent as possible. We will be publishing the total amount collected from this initiative and also uploading a receipt from the Japanese Red Cross Society after we have transferred the funds.
We hope you will support us whole-heartedly in this endeavor.
