How to Donate to Shine On! Kids

Shine On! Kids is dedicated to making life better for kids with cancer and other serious illnesses in Japan and their families. Incorporated as an NPO, we are supported entirely by the generosity of our individual and corporate sponsors.

Thanks to each and every supporter, Shine On! Kids is officially certified by the Japanese government! Our new Nintei status affirms the impact we make and reflects the support behind our organization.

It is a certification that also gives back. From December 7th 2012, your support will now be tax deductible in Japan. For more information, please refer to Japanese National Tax Agency or your personal accountant.
