JASH Weekly Update 8/19: Great Upcoming Community Programs

Dear Members and Friends of JASH, This week, we have a number of awesome upcoming programs to share with you from other Japan-related organizations. From a book talk by author Jodie Ching (Chiemi Souen) to upcoming Japanese college fairs by License Academy, there’s sure to be something for everyone in your ʻohana! Don’t forget to JOIN TEAM JASH in this year’s virtual Visitor Industry Charity Walk, where the funds raised support our educational programs like our Japan Wizards Competition (JWC) and Asian-Pacific Children’s Convention (APCC). Were you born in 1941, or know a JASH member who is? Nominate them for the United Japanese Society of Hawaii’s (UJSH) 47th Annual Nenchosha Ian Engei Taikai (Senior Citizens’ Festival)! Details for all of these great opportunities below. Thank you for supporting JASH!


Support JASH in the Virtual Visitor Industry Charity Walk

August 30 – September 12, 2021

For 2021, the Visitor Industry Charity Walk (VICW) is going virtual! This charity walk is an important fundraising event that supports our educational programs like our Japan Wizards Competition (JWC) and the Asian-Pacific Children’s Convention (APCC). The funds raised through this walk support JASH and other non-profit organizations throughout Oahu. Support JASH students and our programs by joining our JASH walking team! From August 30 to September 12, walkers will use a mobile application to track steps and connect with Team JASH. To join, click here and select “Pledge To This Team” to register as a walker. Registration (which counts as a donation!) is $50 for adults and $25 for children under 18. Walkers will receive an email with information on how to set up the step-tracking app upon registration. Want to donate to JASH instead? Help us maximize our charity walk turnout by making your tax-deductible contribution via the VICW. Donating is through the same page as signing up to walk; click here and select “Pledge To This Team” to make a donation towards JASH. ANYONE can participate in the Charity Walk! Invite your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, clients, schools, clubs, etc. and safely track your steps from August 30 to September 12.
