Bushfire information for Japanese tourist
During September we shipped quite a few packages, parcels and souvenirs from ANZ onwards to Japan. But it wasn’t just business as usual at JSP. This past month we donated 2% of all sales to NPO Mirai no Mori an organization that provides educational summer camp experiences to Japanese children living in care homes.
The souvenirs we ship represent memories of new places and experiences. We’re proud to help our clients make these memories and we wanted to help other communities do the same. We’re very excited to have donated enough money to send 3 children to a NPO Mirai no Mori camp this coming summer. We really believe in the work that MNM does and have decided to top up our donation to enable a total of 5 children to spend a summer at one of their camps.
At camp, these children will have the opportunity to learn English, meet new role models, make new friends and build leadership skills in the great outdoors. We know that through the great work NPO Mirai no Mori does, these 5 children will walk away with special memories and hard earned skills that will bring them joy and success for many years to come.
During the month of September, JSP will donate 2% of all sales to charity partner NPO Mirai no Mori. Our goal is to enable at least five Japanese children living in care homes to attend a Mirai no Mori English summer camp.
JSP ships specialty items from Australia and New Zealand to Japan with care and efficiency. But what we ‘do’ is about so much more than that.
Australia and New Zealand tourists trust us to handle and ship their treasured items and souvenirs collected during their travels back to their home destinations. These souvenirs represent memories of new places and experiences. We’re proud to help our clients make and keep these memories for years to come.
This year we decided to take our mission a bit further and to support disadvantaged Japanese children in making some summer memories of their own. At Mirai no Mori the children will have the chance to explore nature, learn English and meet new friends and role models. They will make life long memories while playing in the great outdoors, gaining new skills, building relationships and learning a new language. And while these memories can’t be boxed up, we knew we could still help them be made.
In Japan, care homes house children who cannot live with their parents for various reasons including divorce, illness, death and economic hardship. Close to 30,000 Japanese children live in care homes. All of these children have suffered serious disadvantage and 60% have experienced abuse. This can lead to a lack of self-confidence, trust issues and difficulties at school.
Mirai no Mori aims to prepare children from care homes for a life of independence through outdoor education programes. They run a number of outdoor programes throughout the year, all at no cost to the children or their care homes.
At Mirai no Mori’s English summer camps the children hike, climb, swim, develop leadership skills, learn real life English and build new relationships. As anyone who has been to summer camp knows, it has its own kind of magic and leaves campers with memories and skills that last a lifetime.
We’re so proud to partner with Mirai no Mori and look forward to supporting children through summer camp.
