Why Companies Sponsor Us

Sponsor Voices


There is so much good energy that can be created by helping others and its positive effect is long lasting. At State Street, I am always surprised and proud of the selfless enthusiasm of so many of our staff who are eager to give their time and energy to helping the community where we work in order to make life better for all of us. State Street is particularly proud to support HOT because of the important volunteer work it does with staff and children at Wakabaryo Children’s Home.

State Street Corporation)



We decided to sponsor Hands On Tokyo because their philosophy of ‘Teamwork’ and ‘Do Good’ are exactly aligned with ours. We hope that through this partnership, Hands On Tokyo will offer everyone a variety of meaningful volunteer programs.

DHL Global Forwarding Japan) and

...the activities and projects Hands On Tokyo works with provide the perfect opportunity for us to extend the themes of our corporate culture while giving back to the community. We are involved with a number of charity events and organizations, but Hands On Tokyo allows us to support worthwhile activities in the local area on an ongoing basis. We are excited to be involved with Hands On Tokyo as a corporate sponsor, and a number of our staff is getting involved on an individual volunteer level also.
