ECO VITA decided to have 10% of profit of TEN-CHI CHA will be donated to Ashinaga organization. It is a non-profit organization in Japan. Ashinaga is currently assisting the children who lost their parents/guardians from the recent earthquake and tsunami that devastated Northeastern Japan. There are many children suddenly lost either their father or mother or both in just one day. They are the most vulnerable victims of the tragedy but at the same time, they are the most hopeful ones too. Thank you for your contribution for supporting Japan.

Below is a statement from ASHINAGA on March 28th 2011
Emergency Support for Affected Children: ASHINAGA Responds to Japan Earthquake/Tsunami
Ashinaga,named for the 1912 American novel Daddy-Long-Legs, is a nonprofit organization based in Tokyo, Japan, which for over 40 years has been providing financial and emotional support to children who have a parent/guardian with a serious disability, or who have lost one or both parents/guardians due to illness, accident, disaster, or suicide. Each year Ashinaga provides financial support to more than 6,000 students in need; total academic loans and scholarships disbursed exceed US$22 million annually.
As in any emergency, children are among the most vulnerable. Ashinaga is now working vigorously to provide financial and emotional support to children affected by the March 11, 2011, earthquake/tsunami. One focus involves the provision of special financial support to children who lost parents/guardians in the disaster, or whose parent/guardian suffered a severe disability in connection with the disaster. These measures include one-time relief payments and special terms for regular Ashinaga educational funding.
Ashinaga has also dispatched several staff members to the disaster area to identify children in need of support. These efforts are based on the 16 years of experience and know-how accumulated through the psychosocial care activities of the Kobe Rainbow House, which was established subsequent to the 1995

ECO VITA also launched Rising Sun Project to support Japan
All ingredients in TEN-CHI CHA ready-to-drink bottle are processed in the IWATE prefecture of Japan which has seen some of the most devastating impact due to the massive earth quake and tsunami taking lives of countless people.
Although the damage by Tsunami is unprecedentedly enormous, people in Iwate are firmly resilient and believe they can reconstruct the city from scratch again. To help the reconstruction effort, ECO VITA located the tea facility in Iwate prefecture to process the ingredients for TEN-CHI CHA. Together with the manufacture, we are determined to build the facility to invite victims of the disaster to re-build their lives as we hope to service them with jobs, and employment.
We really appreciate your contribution for purchasing ready-to-drink TEN-CHI CHA. Your purchasing directly helps us revive the damaged city and stabilize the active industry in Japan. We believe that is what people in Japan need the most. Revitalizing Japan is not so difficult if the whole world can cooperate with the reconstruction process.
