The Social Justice Committee now finished our Second Harvest MS/HS fundraiser!


We are making this issue to note that the Social Justice Committee has successfully finished and donated all funds to Second Harvest through the accessory fundraiser!

We have donated a total of  ¥21,230!

Thank you very much for everybody's cooperation and I hope there was some enjoyment for this contribution to good.

Now, to move forward, we are stretching the fundraiser out to the 3rd and 4th graders as well. While still on the topic of 'Poverty in Japan,' we are going to donate to Wakaeda Gakuen in Fukushima to support the local community in the recovery from the 3.11 earthquake. (This still heavily affects poverty in the region! Wakaeda Gakuen supports children in difficult situations to receive proper shelter, food, and education.) The products are the same, now with the option of a DIY kit for all of them. It would be a chance to use your hands and create an accessory for yourself!

If you are interested and have siblings (or friends) in the grades, please don't hesitate to fill out this form and contact us if needed!

Ethics of Animal Cafes and the Rise of Cruelty-free Animal Cafes
Leina Pham-The (Matsuoka)

Have you ever wished for a magical place where you can bond with pet animals? Somewhere you can both relax and have a therapeutic experience with furry friends? Well, if that is the case, animal cafés are your answer. From owls and hedgehogs to capibaras, micropigs, dogs and cats—list any animals you can think of, and you will (probably) find an animal café dedicated to that animal—and of course, drink coffee at the same time. But paws for a minute: are animal cafés really ethical? Is it really a place full of adorable pets or a place full of exploited animals? Discover the dark side of animal cafes through this article.
