On May 22nd, 2017 Seibo were invited to deliver a guest lecture on the topic of charity by Musashi University’s Department of Media & Sociology. The talk encompassed tales of early international charitable gestures at the time of the Potato Famine in Ireland in 1847 involving recently persecuted American Indians of the Choctaw tribe responding to fellow humans in need. It also focused on the role of the media in creating awareness of issues of poverty & hunger in our world and in so-doing helping to create a ‘donation culture’- the power to move people’s hearts across national borders.
Having looked at the impact of Halloween on charity the talk then introduced a lesser-known story of how Malawi, one of the world’s poorest countries, responded to Japan’s need in 2011 at the time of the Great East Japan earthquake.
