Neconote Flea Market for Tohoku Vol. 1 ねこのてフリーマーケット for 東北 Vol.1 @Kyoto 京都 Oct. 21

Neconote Team at Charity Event in Shiga December 2011
We are still a long way from recovery in Tohoku. At Neconote we believe that every contribution counts! Building upon previous and ongoing Kansai-based efforts to support revitilization in the disaster areas, we hope to continue with that momentum with the bi-annual Neconote Flea Market for Disaster Recovery. All funds will be contributed to local organizations in Tohoku (More details below). Hope to see you on the 21st!
