tessenderlo charity for tohoku 3.11

Was an initiative started by Rob Van Nylen (15 March 2011-11 March 2013), a Belgian living in Tokyo, to collect donations for the earthquake & tsunami struck areas in Japan.
All proceedings were transferred to the Japanese Red Cross and the final remaining amount was donated to Tokyo Brits, for their epic bicycle ride from Tokyo to Minami-Soma, on the symbolic date of 11 March 2013, 2 years after the quake and marked also the complete closing of this personal charity initiative. #GanbaroJapan.
