FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(March 12, 2011, New York, NY) – Mirai Clinical, the revolutionary new Japanese age defying body care line for women that recently launched online in February 2011, has set up a charitable donation through the American Red Cross to assist in the relief of the Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami.
Mirai’s founder, Koko Hayashi, who was born in and grew up in Japan, is deeply saddened by the tragedy and is extremely concerned not only about her own family and friends but for others currently living and visiting the country. Shortly after the earthquake, Koko spoke with one of her associates there. His factory was hit and, while no one was seriously injured, his machines are in terrible condition and will take months to be restored. “We await their recovery. It’s important for us to support such damaged local businesses,” says Hayashi.
Over sixteen thousand people have either died or are still missing. Close to half a million people in Japan have lost their homes and many remain in crowded shelters, with food, water, and medical aid in short supply.
Mirai means “FUTURE” in Japanese.
“We should be able to provide hope to them,” says Hayashi
“It is amazing to hear how the Japanese people are supporting each other without a selfish attitude. Even gangs, known as ‘Yakuza’ are working as volunteers. It is a big challenge but proves as an opportunity to support each other and feel united as a world nation,” says Hayashi. “I feel very strongly that we have to do whatever we can do to help. It’s easy to say we’re saddened or to show sympathy but that is not enough. If everyone makes a donation, no matter how minimal, those efforts accumulate and amount into a large help.”
Mirai Clinical will donate 10% of sales on all purchases of Mirai products sold on the company website during the period of March 12, 2011 through December 31, 2011 to the American Red Cross. Each Mirai purchase and donation to the American Red Cross will support disaster relief efforts to help those affected by the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific. On rare occasions when donations exceed American Red Cross expenses for a specific disaster, contributions are then used to prepare for and serve victims of other disasters.
