2016 Spring Gala



On March 13, Today is the Day Foundation will commemorate the 6th memorial of the 3/11 Fukushima disaster with a Spring Gala Luncheon and silent art auction. The Spring Gala will benefit the TITD Miracle Kutchie Experience, an annual art retreat exchange program in Singapore that helps children victims of Fukushima to de-contaminate their body and restore their immune system. In partnership with La Salle School of Arts, Red Cross Singapore and Red Pencil International, the Miracle Kutchie Experience works with a team of certified art therapists from Japan. Founded in 2014 by Noritoshi Hirakawa (TITD Founder) as a response to the disaster, this unique program has since provided medical and therapeutic support to children living in Fukushima.
