NY Miyagi-kenjinkai requests help from U.S. citizens who have lived or worked in Miyagi, Fukushima or Iwate


Thanks to Takahiro Ito of the Japan Local Government Center (aka CLAIR NY) for sharing this information about a request from the NY Miyagi-kenjinkai for help from U.S. citizens who have lived or worked in Miyagi, Fukushima or Iwate:

Dear Friends in the Japanese Production Industry — WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We are putting together a video to send our best wishes to people who were devastated by the earthquake and tsunami on March 11th, 2011.

It’s for a branding commercial sponsored by a Japanese Semiconductor maker, scheduled to air during the JAPAN CORPORATE TEAM WOMEN’S MARATHON RELAY RACE this December.

The marathon runs through the cities in Miyagi prefecture that were most affected by the disaster.

We want to make contact with any U.S. Citizens you know who may have lived, worked, or visited FUKUSHIMA, IWATE, MIYAGI — the area recently devastated by the events of March 11th — and record their message in the NY or LA metro areas.

Ideal candidates are men and women between the ages of 20-40. It will be a chance for them to be interviewed for a TV message that will cheer on a recovering Japan, and help lift the spirits of the whole country!

If you know someone in the west coast please get in touch with office in California:

3122 Santa Monica Blvd.
Santa Monica, CA  90404
TEL (310) 828-9200

Please fill out the below application and send it, along with a photo, to Taka or me.  Interviews will be conducted this October or November.

Our client will go through the applicants and select the interviewees, each of whom will receive $1,000 for their participation.

Thanks for your help and support!

Best regards,
