The event:
On September 6th, Japan Base participated in the Yokota US Air Force base "Japan-American Friendship Festival", helping out the American and Japanese Red Cross societies with their blood and bone marrow donation campaign. We participated with our friends of the 501st Japanese Garrison.

The Friendship Festival is an annual event when Japanese people can enter the base and enjoy various aspects of the American culture such as food, drinks, music, etc. There are also demonstrations, aircraft displays and fireworks.

The blood and bone marrow donation was the first on-base joint event organized by the Japanese and American Red Cross societies, allowing both Japanese and American people to give blood and register on the worldwide bone marrow donor registry.

Approximately 148,000 people attended in 2 days. I got word from one of the American organizer that they received 50 registrations on Saturday. We are all very happy for them!

Part of our duties for that event: taking pictures with everyone and handing out Gift for Life Bone Marrow Foundation flyers.

Cool pose. The sign reads "blood donation".

Thank you for reading and see you in the next event!
