thank you letter for food received at the Kozmoz Kansai Food BankThe other morning I found this note in the Kozmoz mailbox along with a 200 yen donation. 

For those that dont read Japanese the note says… 

"I receive public assistance. My rent sucks up most of my welfare allowance and the only way I could ever eat a pastry is to take something out of my regular food budget. The other day I received some free pastries (at the Kozmoz Kansai Food Bank Pantry ) and enjoyed some for the first time in ages. 

I really appreciate it, and am very grateful.

I am sorry this (donation) is so little but please receive it.

Thank you so much…"

It moved me deeply and I thought… As I look around us, I see people driving Lexus, 50 story condominium buildings going up, and young ladies sporting thousand dollar Louis Vitton bags… Should it be so difficult for a grandma to enjoy something so simple as an apple turnover?

We don't thinks so here at Kozmoz. And as for myself, the sacrifices that I and my family have made to make the Kansai Food Bank a reality are just that much more insignificant after reading that heartfelt letter.

So in turn from us at Kozmoz, Thank you.

With your help, someone will have just a little more joy in their lives today and without your help, someone will go with out today…
