Line Introduces Pokemon Stickers For A Cause

A Step Towards Humanity!

An Effort for Charity

An earthquake of 9.0 magnitudes bashed northeastern shore of Japan in 2011 and results in assassination and dislocation of the thousands of Japanese. Keeping that disaster into the consideration, Line, a messaging app, launched the latest set of Pikachu-themed stickers on Tuesday, whose all proceedings will go to the charity called Chance for Children. The Japanese company came into being in 2011 with an aim to help Japanese children who get affected by the earthquake. Total of 40 stickers are available in the set featuring Pikachu saying “Thank you” in various Japanese dialects.

Goodwill of People

People across the country, who have submitted their designs to Line’s Creators Market, designed these stickers. As per Line, they received over 180 submissions, but only 40 designs got selected and the selections are made by Junichi Masuda, general manager of the game developer, Game Freak. The company is all about the Pokémon role-playing video games.

Pokémon Thank You stickers can only be downloaded from Line, Japan’s app stores at 120 yen ($1.20) cost.
