Sleep Out LATAM Fund
The Sleep Out is an annual fundraiser for the Covenant House to raise critical lifesaving funds to give kids safe shelter and opportunity, and unite your community against youth homelessness The Sleep Out is not about pretending to be homeless. We Sleep Out to show our solidarity with those who are homeless and to let the world know about the ever-growing population of young people who face homelessness. There's more to Sleep Out than a night without a mattress. Sleep Out raises critical funds to help Covenant House provide 24/7 shelter, sanctuary, and support to youth overcoming homelessness. During the Sleep Out, participants are asked to give up their beds for one night. The evening begins with a program highlighting the journeys of youth who have been or are currently part of the Covenant House. Staff provides overview of the many programs and services that the Covenant House provides. Teams are celebrated for their fundraising milestones. At the end of the program, participants (otherwise known as "Sleepers") adjourn outside for the Sleep Out. Once outside, Sleepers use only a piece of cardboard and a sleeping bag for the night. In the morning, it's a time of reflection and shared community. Teams come together in the morning virtually to share their key take-aways and experiences. As a Sleeper, you are a fundraiser and advocate helping to keep the lights on and the doors open for young people seeking shelter. And your night of solidarity sends a powerful message to our youth that they are not alone.

現在、コロナ渦のため、NPOもこれまでのようにボランティア活動ができず、支援を必要としている人へのサポートが難しい状況にあります。そこで、もうすぐハロウィンの季節なので、日本社会に貢献しているNPOに寄付で貢献してみませんか? これまで、ボランティア活動や寄付の経験がない方もこれを機にぜひ、ご協力いただければと思います。 一般的に他者へ貢献すると自分の幸福度も上がる傾向があるといわれています。 現在、私たちが住んでいる日本も含めて、世界中でボランティアや支援を必要としている人たちがいます。このような難しい局面である時こそ、私達のConscious Culture (自己理解、他者への理解、自分が他者(チーム、お客様、より大きなコミュニティー)にもたらす影響に常に目を向け理解し、意図的に行動することにより最高の体験を生み出す)を体現し、サポートを必要としている人たちを支援していきましょう。 Currently, due to the corona vortex, NPOs are not able to volunteer as much as they have in the past, making it difficult to support those in need. So, since it's almost Halloween season, why not contribute to NPOs that are contributing to Japanese society with donations? Even if you have never volunteered or donated to a cause before, we hope you will take this opportunity to help them. In general, it is said that when you contribute to others, your own happiness tends to increase. There are people all over the world, including in Japan where we live, who are in need of volunteers and support. In these difficult times, we need support in embodying our Conscious Culture (self-awareness, understanding of others, and creating the best possible experience through constant focus and intentional action on the impact we have on others (teams, customers and the larger community). Let's support those who are

Equal Justice Initiative Fund
The Equal Justice Initiative is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society. Founded in 1989 by Bryan Stevenson, a widely acclaimed public interest lawyer and bestselling author of Just Mercy, EJI is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides legal representation to people who have been illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in state jails and prisons. We challenge the death penalty and excessive punishment and we provide re-entry assistance to formerly incarcerated people. EJI works with communities that have been marginalized by poverty and discouraged by unequal treatment. We are committed to changing the narrative about race in America. EJI produces groundbreaking reports, an award-winning wall calendar, and short films that explore our nation’s history of racial injustice, and we recently launched an ambitious national effort to create new spaces, markers, and memorials that address the legacy of slavery, lynching, and racial segregation, which shapes many issues today. EJI provides research and recommendations to assist advocates and policymakers in the critically important work of criminal justice reform. We publish reports, discussion guides, and other educational materials, and our staff conduct educational tours and presentations for thousands of students, teachers, faith leaders, professional associations, community groups, and international visitors every year.
