2018.10.11 Nippan starts “charity book” donation scheme for Western Japan disaster area
In Japan tremendous damage was sustained in various areas of western Japan due to record high levels of heavy rain in late June to early July this year. Still many victims are forced to live in evacuation centers. In response Nippon Shuppan Hanbai Inc. (Nippan) have started a charity book project and are collecting books for the victims from August 13th to September 30th. The donations gathered during the period will be delivered to the evacuation centers and facilities by the Nissha Hiroshima Branch through Kure City Hall and Mihara City Hall in early October.

In total 44 bookstores in Hiroshima · Yamaguchi prefecture (Futaba book, Inc., Keizo Shinko Co., Ltd., Fuji · TSUTAYA · entertainment Co., Ltd., Toshino store) are participating in the charity book project. You can check the list of participating shops you are conducting via the Nippan website or on Facebook and Twitter.

The consumer goes directly to the store where they purchase the book they want to donate and have the store donate it on their behalf. Although the genre of the book is not important, it seems that children's books, novels for adults, and puzzle magazines are particularly welcomed. Donation centers include Kure City Yasuura Machizukuri Center, Tenno Town Planning Center, and Mihara City Hongo Sunflower Day Nurseries.

In the western Japan due to torrential rain, many houses and buildings were flooded and collapsed. Damage has also been sustained to public facilities and nursery schools, meaning some children have lost toys and picture books. I hope those living in evacuation centers currently anxious about their futures will be able to slowly return to their daily lives.
