Naomi Suzuki’s charity work
After the successful launch of her single, on September 26th and the 3rd, Naomi organised the “Save The Kids Project”, an online fundraiser event to support children’s charities all around the world. More than twenty-five thousand people tuned in to the live stream to support her. All of the profits made from the event are destined to Children’s Dining Room, to fight child hunger, and Your Action, to help organise and facilitate sporting/leisure activities for children in need.
The event showed a lot of diversity. For example, the Japanese style Beatles “The side effects” performed in it and the nostalgic J-pop was played by Naomi and other great artists in beautiful harmony with Japan’s leading pianist, Makoto Aoyagi.
There was also a great magic show by Mr Hero.

The Save The Kids project achieved cross-generational support and was highly acclaimed, which was possible thanks to the collaboration with talented artists such as Hideki Serizawa, Takefumi Asano, Momo, Taishi Igari, and Suite Voice.
There were also panel discussions involving many Japanese professionals, including Toru Yamamoto, one of Japan’s leading film directors, Seiichiro Maki, a former member of the Japanese national football team, and Masto Kimura, an international journalist who responds to the worries regarding children in Shizuoka’s children’s musicals, directed by Nobuhiro Sasaura.
These professionals focused on tackling a very important subject: “What can I do right now to help during the pandemic?”.
Naomi believes in the power of music, and that is why she has been contributing to society for the last 10 years. Her passion for charity work did not stop even once she got very ill health around the time of the 2011 Japanese tsunami disaster, as the talented songwriter overcame her condition and “resumed her activities with renewed vigour” after seeing the suffering from the Japanese. She went on to release a double A-side charity single from which all proceeds were given to the disaster area, and she also collaborated with the disaster victims in writing the song ‘Home’, allowing those affected to express their feelings to the world.
Naomi organised charity gigs with the support of fellow Japanese musicians who share her concern for the welfare of “the scores of orphans and disadvantaged children left behind by the disaster”. The singer also became the first Japanese singer to perform at the Houses of Parliament on March 5th, 2015, where she gave a rousing performance at the Memorial Concert of Japan’ Earthquake and Tsunami. The concert, which marked the 4th anniversary of the disaster, was a great success that drew attention from the Japanese press and media.
