Pecha Kucha Vol. 8 on April 28 – Inspire Japan

All the proceeds from Volume 8 would go to the post earthquake-tsunami rebuilding efforts in Japan.

We will be a part of Inspire Japan – a global initiative led by the Pecha Kucha HQ in Tokyo along with Architecture for Humanity in which 120+ cities from around the world are participating. See: http://global-day.pecha-kucha.org/ There was a similar initiative last year to help with the rebuilding of Haiti, in which $80,000 was raised from around the world, and paid for a new school building (- see the presentation from PKSF: http://www.pecha-kucha.org/presentations/220 )

What you can do: The cover will be the same as always – $5 – you don’t have to pay anything extra. (Since we are volunteer driven – at the local as well as global level – and do not have any overheads or administrative costs, we will be able to send 100% of what we collect to Japan). However you can help by helping spread the word, and by encouraging others to attend. Hope you can be there.
