Mystery donor leaves three boxes of Star Wars toys for children at a welfare facility in Japan
Three boxes of Star Wars toys were found left at a children’s welfare facility in Yokohama, Japan along with a letter asking that they be used for the sake of the children.According to police and the facility, Seibo Aiji-en, the cardboard boxes were found outside the facility’s rear gate on April 4 after midnight by two live-in employees returning from a party. Police opened the boxes and found around 40 toys, such as Star Wars figurines. A letter in one of the boxes read in part, “It would be great if there are children who like Star Wars, but I’ll be happy if the toys are made use of through means like auctioning.”
There are 76 youths from age 2 to 18 living at the facility. An employee said the facility would make effective use of the toys, but one 34-year-old employee said that rather than one-time help, the children’s welfare facility would like to receive long-term aid, even if it is small.
