Cascade Designs has given mattresses, water reservoirs and dry storage bags to Operation USA, a group working with Japanese partners to help as many as 4,000 citizens in areas that the Japanese government and larger charitable agencies might overlook. Deuter along with Belmart, is donating 1,600 sleeping bags to Deuter’s Japanese distributor, Iwatani-Primus of Tokyo. The distributor will work with Japanese relief agencies to provide the sleeping bags where they are most needed.
