Fundraiser for Tohoku University Hospital

Hawaii companies join efforts in raising money that will go immediately and directly to Sendai.

HONOLULU Magazine’s owner, aio, is partnering with like-minded community businesses and organizations to raise money that will go immediately and directly to Japan’s Tohoku University Hospital. The Sendai-based hospital is in the heart of the quake and tsunami-ravaged Tohoku Region. The hospital continues to care for victims of the March 11 quake and tsunami.
