You will have to create an account with Wise first, but after that it was quite easy.
You can send money to this account number from there, or you can find the payee from ※2the e-mail address associated with the account without the account number information.
Thank you for your support.
This is not a tax-deductible donation at this time.
This is not a "donation" that will be distributed to each victim at a later date, but a "support money" that will be used promptly according to the purpose of each organization based on the judgment and responsibility of the organization working in the affected areas. We would appreciate your understanding and support.
Noto Renaissance Project Support Fund
This is Kaoru Yamazaki, representative of the Noto Rene Executive Committee.
We would like to thank all of you for your concern and support since the Noto Peninsula Earthquake of 2024.
Since its establishment in 2019, Noto Renaissance has been working to increase the number of people interacting with Noto and to revitalize Noto's municipalities, which have been called "cities with the potential to disappear," by communicating Noto's charms from a woman's perspective.
Our official name is "Noto Renaissance Project Executive Committee", abbreviated as "Notorune Executive Committee".
The name was given with the hope of revitalizing Noto, which in the distant past was also known as Little Kyoto and was culturally prosperous,
Now, due to this unprecedented disaster, the renaissance, reconstruction, and revitalization of Noto, as the name of the Noto Renaissance Project implies, has become an urgent task.
After the disaster, we have been focusing on delivering useful information to disaster victims, accepting and distributing relief supplies, and supporting the call for volunteers, utilizing the information transmission tools we have built up through our past activities.
In the midst of all this, we have received many kind words from people with whom we have a close relationship that they would like to send relief funds instead of supplies.
In fact, what the disaster victims need changes day by day, and I believe that mental support is becoming more important from now on. There are many things that only the Self-Defense Forces and local governments can do at this time, but I hope that we can continue our activities for Noto over the long span of 5 to 10 years, taking advantage of our strength of being in the area and being able to respond quickly while listening to the voices on the ground, and also looking toward future reconstruction activities, which will become even more important in the future. We are prepared to continue our activities for the Noto region over the long term, from here on out, for five to ten years. Specifically, in addition to the restoration of Noto's tourism and activities to revitalize the people of Noto, we are also considering the establishment of a medical system that will allow the elderly and those who need nursing care to live in peace.
In order to once again be able to say, "Please come and visit us in Noto with peace of mind," and to restore Noto's vitality so that its people can welcome you with a smile, Notorune will continue to work based on the relationships we have built with the local people.
Please support us in this endeavor.
