It has been decided that it will be done. Kondo has been involved in numerous social contribution activities, such as putting his own items up for charity auctions. This time, through Child Fund Japan, they will be supporting children in Asia and other parts of the world in the form of “performance-linked donations,” in which the donation amount is determined based on their performance in the match.

-Comment from Kondo-
We have decided to make a performance-linked donation to Child Fund Japan. As a professional baseball player, when I thought about what I could do to help, I decided on this project because I wanted to support children and their families who are suffering from poverty. Carrying out support activities linked to performance will personally motivate players to play. I will do my best to continue to be active and help as many children as possible. I also hope that through my activities, children will become interested in baseball even just a little bit.
*Donation details*
100,000 yen per home run and 10,000 yen per hit
Together with our fans, ChildFund Japan will support Kondo’s success this season so that educational support can reach as many children as possible across the ocean.
