1 Action, 1 Smile Campaign

The “1 Action, 1 Smile” Campaign, which ran in a partnership with several Japanese nonprofit organizations, offered attendees  6 different ‘Giving Back’ opportunities.

On day 1, 2,000 gifts were wrapped for mothers from one of the earthquake/tsunami disaster areas in Japan – this activity was organized with JOICFP.

On day 2, 200 bags of rice were packed by attendees and delivered to families in need through the food bank, Second Harvest Japan. And, 100 participants including children, visited the Kids Coding booth, runwith CANVAS, where they took part in the Hour of Code and other STEM learning materials.

Our Book and Food Drive was also successful. As a result, 653 books were donated to Florence, and 371 foods delivered to single-parent families through Second Harvest Japan.

The World Tour Twitter fundraising campaign was supported by Salesforce Japan who donated 100 JPY for every tweet that included the hashtag #salesforce or #canvasjp. In total, 6,000 tweets were sent and 600,000 JPY was donated to CANVAS.

Nonprofit sessions and seminars

In a breakout session, Florence,  a social enterprise that aims to solve social issues for parents and children, shared its 10 years progress with Salesforce and best practices on using it. There were 300 in attendance, from both the nonprofit and corporate world.

Our business partners NPO Support Center and FUNDREX also organized a seminar during the event. Representatives from Japan Fundraising Association also shared their success in using Salesforce to 50 attendees.
