Top New Japan Pro Wrestling talent Kazuchika Okada (also known in certain circles as “Mr. Suzuko Mimori”) has made a personal donation of JPY 5 Million to the Nippon Foundation’s special COVID-19 fund to support Japan’s frontliners.
A statement from Okada follows:
I’m always grateful for NJPW fans’ support, and it’s my hope that I can get back to hearing the cheers of sold out crowds as soon as possible.
It’s usually me receiving the support and power of the people, but now I feel it’s my turn to lend support to medical staff fighting this disease.
I hope fans continue to stay home and stay healthy, so that we can return to the ring as soon as possible.
This is not the entertainer’s only charitable act, as he has also established the Rainmaker Foundation dedicated to supporting those afflicted by childhood cancer.
