I Need Your Support (Donations, Sponsorships, Volunteers)

All reporting expenses and operating costs are currently coming out of my own pocket, but this would all be pointless if the photographs and reporting are not released to the public. If you approve of my intents, support the future of photo journalism and would like to continue to see further work from photo journalist, Yuki Iwanami, I would appreciate your contributions.

 Credit card and Paypal payments have not been set up yet, so at the moment, I can only accept donations through bank transfers to the following account. There is no specified amount or deadline for donations. Any amount is appreciated any time. Please state the payment as a donation when sending. Upon request, I will provide the monthly donation sum and budgetary quotes covering the expense of reporting.

 I am also inviting sponsors, individuals and corporations willing to donate regularly. Please enquire by email.
At the same time, I am looking for people who can help maintain this site. Currently, translation and web design relies on the help from volunteers. If you are willing to contribute in any way, please contact me by email. 

note: As I am not a registered as a Non Profit Organization, donations are not tax deductible.
