Within hours of the earthquake, the Los Angelesbased Japan America Society of Southern California (JASSC) established the Kobe Relief Fund, ultimately receiving nearly 10,000 individual contributions totaling $1.7 million, recognized by then Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama as the largest amount received from a grassroots campaign.
The JASSC's spontaneous and extraordinary support is rooted in the American Japanese emigrants and their descendants' bilateral ties to government agencies, NPOs, and corporate philanthropy - bound together by MPNs developed mainly throughout the 20th century.
Following the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, the JASSC created the 2011 Japan Relief Fund, and together with Japanese corporate and grassroots support has committed $750,000 of the nearly $1.5 million raised to the Japanese Red Cross Society, Save the Children Japan, and Seikeijuku Tohoku Earthquake Fund.
