Fast Retailing owns the casual clothing companies “UNIQLO” and “g.u.”. The company has enjoyed a lot of success and has chosen to donate money to the regions hardest hit by the earthquake: Miyagi, Iwate, Fukushima, Aomori and Ibaraki.
Fast Retailing has donated 300 million yen ($3.6 million USD) to disaster relief for the Tohoku Pacific Ocean earthquake and an additional 100 million yen ($1.2 million USD) was tallied from donations from their employees all over the world.
What’s more amazing is that the company’s CEO Yanai Tadashi has personally donated one billion yen (12.2 million USD) to the disaster relief.
Adding it all up, this corporation has donated 1.4 billion yen ($17.1 million USD) to the Red Cross of Japan.
The company will also be donating support goods. They will be donating 300,000 “HeatTech” undergarments that protect people from the cold as well as jeans and towels. All of these items are worth 700 million yen (8.6 million USD) in total.
