Like the BEST! Fund
Support medical workers who fight against COVID-19 with entertainment!
Important Notice (as of May 8)
* Initially, it was being planned to solicit support from everyone as the Like the BEST fund, and make a 50% donation to the "Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)" and the WHO "COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund", but in Japan, donations through individual projects like this project, there is a possibility that it is illegal to do so, and I haven't find a solution to receive fund and donate to those organization yet at this point.
Therefore I'm asking everyone who agrees with the project and who enjoy Like the BEST! to donate directly to either the "Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)" or the WHO "COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund", OR both organizations by going to their websites below.
If I find a way that you can send you donations to "Like the BEST!", I will install it again.
Also, those who have sent donation to "Like the BEST !" while donation system was on, I have already made refund procedure, so please check. If it's not refunded yet, please let me know from the CONTACT page. I will respond and refund for sure.
We apologize for any inconvenience and confusion.
Contribute the world with entertainment & art
Currently, the pandemic of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is worldwide thread . Most of cultural live activities are cancelled and postponed because these are considered not essential in terms of "maintain the life and health". Certainly, I agree that cultural activity are not essential lifeline like food, accommodation and health, and its role is basially to enlight our life and heart. But even in this situation, I believe cultural activity can contribute to essential activity.
"Support medical workers, fighting against COVID-19 in the world for "maintaining the life" with the power of entertainment and art"
Medical workers are rescuing COVID-19 patients by risking their lives. Of course, we're having many problems such as unemployment and income reduction, but in order to overcome this crisis, medical services are the most important especially because many countries are facing medical collapse and it'll be even worse in developing countries.
I believe through "Like the BEST!", all of us together can contribute huge support to frontline medical services towards COVID-19 by the "power" of viewers' enjoyment through the "power" of various fields' performances.
