On February 23rd, 2012, Association for Aid and Relief, Japan (AAR JAPAN) visited Tachibana Kindergarten in Koriyama City, Fukushima Prefecture. In addition to reading the picture book “Not Mines, but Flowers”, AAR JAPAN delivered 90 hand-made tote bags that were collected from supporters all over Japan, as well as delivering 90 boxes of chocolate with messages collected through AAR JAPAN’s Heart-Warming Chocolate Delivery Campaign.
A child gives Sunny-chan a high five as she receives her chocolate.
Children receive hand-made tote bags sent from all over the country. Some played with the stuffed toys on the Sunny-chan key chains.
|Children and parents keep a dosimeter with them at all times. If only they could remove it and play outside freely…|
Children carefully cling to their chocolates and messages. “Where did Sunny-chan come from?” “He floated down on a dandelion puff to bring chocolate for everyone.” “Wow!”
