Japan Relief

Dr. Eric and Yugi Takahashi

We have excellent news to share! The Red Thread Promise is now accepting donations on behalf of the Association for Aid & Relief, Japan (AAR Japan), an organization that we have worked with in Haiti. Donations will DIRECTLY help those communities devastated by the earthquake and tsunami.

AAR Japan was instrumental in re-opening and providing supplies to St. Vincent's Center for Handicapped Children over the past year. During our trip to Haiti in February 2011, we were privileged to meet Yuji Takahashi, AAR Japan's Country Director, while we were working at St. Vincent's. Speaking with him and hearing about the programs they have reinforced our sense that AAR Japan is very responsible and judicious in the use of their funds.

In addition to their work at St. Vincent's, AAR Japan has also donated millions to various other projects throughout Port-au-Prince and did so in a respectful & responsible way, using Haitian materials and labor to help rebuild its economy. We are proud to partner with them in this capacity, providing a direct link to aid in Japan. (For more information on AAR Japan, please visit

Donations can be made by using the PayPal link (in the sidebar on the right) OR by sending a check directly to:

The Red Thread Promise
4027 Dauphine Street
New Orleans, LA 70117

Please be sure to indicate "Japan" on the memo line so we allocate your funds toward the project of your choice. As always, all donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
