Make an Impact in 2024: Support Japan Noto Earthquake Disaster Relief

We have been working diligently on 2024 initiatives and artisans' stories, while one incident have cut the queue: Noto region was hit by an M7.6 earthquake on the very first day of the year. On a cozy afternoon where many young parents and grandchildren from the cities traveled to the rural villages to stay with the elderly in Noto to celebrate New Year. Some have lost their lives in an instant. Firefighters frantically trying to control the fire at Wajima but couldn't because fire hoses were blocked by collapsed houses and water in the river receded after the quake.
