Last month I saw my friend Chiyo wearing the Bench baller band for earthquake relief.
Chiyo said she got them at Bench for only Php 50.
Bench says proceeds of its sales will go to the victims of the Japan earthquake.
This is being done in cooperation with Italians in Japan for the Re-birth of Tohoku Region.
The group will mobilize and ensure proceeds will be given directly to the victims of the Japan earthquake.
Bench says: “We were asked to donate through our Italian contacts in Japan because they are working directly in the affected areas, where a lot of the residents have been displaced or lacking in basic necessities. We are helping out by providing undergarments especially at this time when the affected area in Japan is experiencing cold weather.”
