March 11 is the sixth anniversary of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan.

To commemorate the disaster and raise much-needed funds for the Taylor Anderson Memorial Fund, this year we’re again hosting Big Bento Lunch.

Register your lunch and invite your friends, family, colleagues or students.

Since the first annual Big Bento Lunch fundraiser in 2012, we’ve raised more than $2000 for Playground of Hope, $7000 for the Save Minamisoma Project, and $15,000 for UNICEF’s work supporting children in the affected regions of Tohoku. As of 2017, we have raised a combination of almost $31,000 for all of our charities.

The initiative is proudly organised by JETAA Vic/Tas/SA, with support from the Consulate-General of Japan, Melbourne.
