2022 Gift-a-Smile campaign

November 29, 2022

As we near the end of 2022 we are inviting you to join us in our Gift-a-Smile campaign by spreading awareness of REI! Your generous support to REI will put a smile on the faces of many. Please tell others!
2022 put refugees on the global stage. We saw how people can rebuild their lives with a little support.
On 29 November we are sending out a weekly short story highlighting the “smiles” our support has brought to beneficiaries in the past. We hope the stories will help you to get to know us better AND inspire you to join us in our campaign to raise 500,000 yen and add 20 monthly or annual donors by the end of the year. If we reach our goal by December 31, we will send you an REI New Year’s Virtual Postcard that will surely put a smile on YOUR face this coming New Year!

November 29 is Giving Tuesday

In recent years, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become mainstays in Japan. So why not Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday is a movement that started in the US in 2012 with the simple idea of encouraging people to do good.

Each week’s story will be shown on the top page of this website.
