“I am honored to be able to participate in such a rare and special event that is the Centennial Anniversary Endowment Campaign. My goal is to have all of us Japanese Zontians partake in giving, whether it be a small or large amount. I am so thankful that so far, everyone that I have spoken to in person has joined and shared. In order to provide a happy life for women and children around the world, it is important that we ‘plant’ the assets, then invest and manage this money tree now, so that the future Zontians have an ‘asset tree’ to harvest or to fall back on during hard times. My fellow Zontians and future Zontians, may I kindly ask you all to help water and enrich the soil of the tree of legacy!”
