ASIJ student group PRO raises money for Typhoon Haiyan relief

ASIJ’s student service group Philippine Relief Organization (PRO) would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped with the Special Philippine Relief Bake Sale on November 12. In total, we raised 181,868 yen (bake sale: 71,443 yen and donation so far: 110,425 yen). It’s not too late if you still want to donate. The donation box is placed at the high school student office.

We have decided to send the money to National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON) ( to help the victims of the Typhoon Haiyan. Thanks to Elicia Cousins (class of 2009) in the Writing Lab, we believe that we have found the right organization which has directly worked with grassroots efforts. We are sending the valuable donation from the ASIJ community to support people in need with confidence.

Thank you everybody for your support.

Ayumi Akiyama (grade 12), James Nishida (grade 11), Mizuki Furukawa (grade 11) and Keiko Auckerman (PRO advisor)
