Our thoughts : We were absolutely surprised that the world’s most famous athletic event, held in our own country, would be staged without spectators.What can we do for the athletes who will be competing under unusual circumstances? What can we do for the people around the world who are looking forward to watching the games at the venue? The result of our own thinking is “UNITE BY EMOTION”.
We are working on this service to turn the suffering caused by COVID-19 into hope for a new era. If you share our vision, please register your support and share the URL of the service site and the hashtag “#UNITEBYEMOTION”.
