About Mission A2J

In wake of the tragic events that began on March 11, 2011, Mission A2J (athletes Assisting Japan) was founded to help the people of the affected areas recover and rebuild their community. In an effort to balance between the importance of the first responders like Red Cross and the rebuilding phase, Mission A2J’s goal is to help Japan both TODAY and TOMORROW by donating their funds to the Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund for immediate disaster relief and to various organizations to help rebuild the athletic infrastructure in the affected areas.
