Futaba Town, Fukushima Prefecture Reconstruction Support Project
Buy a "CARRY THE SUN®" Futaba-cho limited model and support the reconstruction of Futaba-cho!
What is a reconstruction support project?
In Futaba Town, Fukushima Prefecture, evacuation orders were issued throughout the town due to the Fukushima Nuclear Power Station accident caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake, forcing all townspeople to evacuate. The townspeople fell apart as they moved from one evacuation center to another. Ten years after the earthquake, the return of the townspeople is scheduled to begin around the spring of 2022. For that reason, Futaba Town is working on town development from scratch so that many people can visit again while improving the living environment at a rapid pace.
We, who sympathize with Futaba Town's efforts, want as many people as possible to pay attention to Futaba Town's efforts, so we bought "Carry the Sun Futaba Town Limited Model". Sold in the One Give One® method.
Buy One Give One® is a mechanism that automatically delivers to domestic and overseas regions that are in trouble when purchased from the CARRY THE SUN® official store. Every time you purchase CARRY THE SUN®, the same number of purchases will be donated to Futaba Town to help with reconstruction efforts.
Every time you use CARRY THE SUN®, you think that the same light is useful for someone, and you feel connected with people in the troubled area. That is the new form of support we think of.
This project will give us an opportunity to learn about Futaba Town, and we aim to have as many people as possible visit Futaba Town. And, through this project, I would like to illuminate the townspeople who live far away with the light of hope.
