Gakkyusha Co, an operator of cram school networks in Japan and overseas, said Thursday it will donate knapsacks worth a total of 5 million yen to children at welfare facilities, becoming one of the first companies to join hundreds of anonymous individuals in the country in making donations for underprivileged children.

About 300 cases of donations in cash, stationary, knapsacks and other items have been delivered to nationwide children’s welfare facilities under the names of heroes like Date Naoto, the main character in the 1960s comic series Tiger Mask.
