Ganbare, Nippon!! is a fundraising event to help the earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan.
It’s being organized by Castella do Paulo and NCreatures, and started its momentum from the will of japanese women who live in Portugal to help earthquake victims in Japan. Pray for Japan will be participating.
Activities will include martial arts demonstrations or presentations (Iaido, Kendo, Aikido), short-duration workshops of Japanese language, caligraphy, origami and cloth work by the japanese ladies who are part of the Pray for Japan group.
Castella do Paulo, a Luso-Nippon tea house will have several sweets available for you to try out at the event.
There will be exhibits and sale of glasswork, paintings, and ceramics by several artists, as well as of zafu-futon items.
For a more detailed programme, with the rest of the activities as well as more information, check out the Facebook event page.
All the acquired funds will be transfered to the Japanese Red Cross, through the account number made available by the Japanese Embassy in Portugal.
