Message from Gymboree Play & Music Community Outreach
Dear Gymboree Friends
You've seen the heart-wrenching images of Japan's cataclysmic earthquake and tsunami. Entire villages have been swept away. Hundreds of thousands of people are displaced.
Mercy Corps is working with longstanding partner, Peace Winds, to help families affected by the disaster. Your donation will be used to meet immediate and longer-term needs of earthquake survivors.
As the global leader in classes for kids, Gymboree Play & Music is deeply committed to helping our Gymboree play centers and friends in Japan after the devastating earthquake. Gymboree Play & Music centers will have donation boxes at cash registers at participating sites, to help raise funds for Mercy Corps' relief efforts, in addition to on-line giving through this site. The Gymboree Corporation will support our fundraising drive, and will continue to support our goals for Japan.
Check your local Gymboree Play & Music center for events like PeaceWinds Play Parties. Little Playlantrophists will March to a Taiko drum, climb a cherry blossom branch, and make a friendship fan to help raise money for Japan. Check for all Gymboree "funraisers" being held at participating sites in the weeks ahead.
Your child will receive a Global Play Ambassador Certificate and a hug from Gymbo for their generous donation. We value the work that Mercy Corps has done and wish to support their response to this catastrophe with your help.
Thank you for your support!
Play Locally & Act Globally!
