Below the Tri4Japan logo are the characters in Japanese for the phrase "Ganbare Nippon," which means we are asking the people of Japan to fight and not to give it. In other words "Fight (in support of) Japan." The back graphic has the fateful date 3.11.11, and the red "Rising Sun" which is the Japanese flag, with the characters for the word "HOPE." At the bottom, it states "Help Japan Endure." The ultimate goal of selling these Jerseys is to raise money while raising awareness and to keep the people of Japan on our minds and in our hearts.
