Place to Grow's 7th Annual Santa Soul Train

  • 17 Dec 2017
  • Minami Sanriku, Tohoku

The Santa Soul Train is a community festival in Minami Sanriku, Tohoku on 17 Dec, 2017 that will bring over 500 survivors and 50 volunteers together - from Tokyo, Sendai, Nagoya, Yamagata, Aomori, the USA, the UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, Italy and more - to celebrate what it means to be empowered.

The Santa Soul Train holiday reunion is one in a series of community workshops and events held by Place To Grow for children and families recovering from earthquakes and disasters. Every year at Christmas we bring these stockings to post-disaster neighborhoods, and help host an international festival.

Last year Place to Grow delivered 1,2000 stockings up and down the coast near Minami Sanriku in 13 locations in 5 cities. This year they are asking for 1,500 stockings and cards for community events in both Fukushima and Miyagi.

Project Goals:

1. Remind 1,000 survivors of 3.11 that they are not alone
2. Host 2 inspiring holiday themed community festivals in Tohoku: Miyagi + Fukushima
3. Connect 1,000 international school students to 1,500 survivor children across Japan
4. Create 100 inspired volunteers
5. Facilitate 6 Cycling Santas to hand deliver 1,000 stockings to survivor children
6. Raise ¥3,000,000
