Thank you for taking your time to visit this page!

Hi, my name is Nobita, the creator of Nobita from Japan.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcIsxujzLRO5qY5f9...
The YouTube channel is about social issues and recent trends in Japan, and recently I’ve featured a young homeless girl, Meru. (I'm creating this page on behalf of her.)

She has been homeless for 3 years since she was kicked out of the parents’ house and all her ID cards were taken away.

[Her future goals:]

  1. Being able to live with her cat
  2. Having a job that supports homeless people in Japan (that have the same situation as her.)

Even though she got her ID back fortunately and can work now, she doesn’t have a place to live yet.
She applied for the welfare but got rejected and with multiple mental disorders, there’d be still many hurdles and obstacles to achieve her goals.

The fund will be used for helping her get a new place and start a new life. It doesn’t solve everything and she’ll still face difficulties. But I believe it’s definitely much better than nothing.

It would be really appreciated if you could make a just small donation for her. Just $1 or 2 would be enough.
I'll make sure she receives the fund and definitely let you know that on the update. (probably with a photo or something.) So please keep your eyes on it.

I cannot wait to see her helping many homeless people in Japan and being truly happy in the future.

Thank you again for checking this page!(^^)

  • @[email protected] Ok Dumb and Dumber ....you guys are pathetic 1. This isn’t YOUR platform its Nobitas ....you know the guy who has a You Tube channel ...so He has chosen Meru and he wants to help her ...thats HIS choice ...not yours and I think i speak for most people here we watch his channel and follow Him so MY MONEY is on Nobita ...I trust him and supports his decision . 2. The fact you are on GoGetFunding projecting your MOMMY issues is so LOW VALUE.... its just really moronic....if you feel so strongly about SOYBOYS and WHITEKNIGHTS ..which is so out of context then start your own PLATFORM and take it over there. 3 . You really dont know anything about Meru so ounce again Nobita has chosen to do this and WE are supporting him in this venture ....if that bothers you so much then dig deeper and take a look at yourself....all your doing is shitting in someone else’s space and it SPEAKS louder than words how dumb you too are .... And to everyone else please remember this is NOBITA’S space and if you trust him and support him like I do dont let people like this sway your humanity ! God Bless Nicholas

  • @Stephen McCallum Thank You for your kindness of thinking about mental illness. I am a woman too and I Have Bipolar disease since 13 years old and ADHD and I made my life,it was hard but I made my life until I married my husband at 38 years old(quite old to still get married in Japan) I didn’t expect any help from anyone and also my friend(His Japanese from High School)he is now working in Tokyo government Office for welfare for many years and no one gave us such a fund or such an amount of money.People must help themselves if they are adults and they can claim welfare(I never did) but I think this girl is lazy person and want to just have easy money and easy life.(Sorry I think this!) Gaijin are just too generous.

  • One thing that hasn’t been considered, as far as I’ve seen so far, is how much someone’s mental health can stop them from doing what feels like easy things to other people. In a deep depression, you really might not feel like doing anything, even if it’s in your own interest and even if other people are trying to help you. In that state it’s not just as simple as "file this application form" I might turn out to be fooled but my impression is NOT that Meru has been scamming anyone. It looks like quite a few people have tried to help Meru and some others might be trying to take advantage of her also. I hope that Nobita can look into this with a calm, clear head and an open mind - and not jump to any wrong conclusions.

The fund transferred/Message from Meru

Hey guys! I’ve met Meru and talked the other day. I’m glad she seemed better than the last time I met. (By the way, she no longer sleeps in a public toilet(^^). For now, she has been staying at a hotel.) I made sure that her bank account is really. . . . .

  • I am a woman too but I don’t understand her exactly. She should get some help like money,but $89,400 is just too much money for just one homeless person Nobita san should give the money to homeless Charity like the Sanyukai Homeless Center, much better idea they can feed many many people with that money!

  • Far too many slack Jawed soy boys on here just ready to White Knight any chick with a Sob Story and give her bags of cash without even knowing if she’s Legit.I watched all the videos and read that Blog and she don’t seem that hard up to me personally.There’s lots of Homeless older people though,it’s very rare to see homeless young Chicks but when I saw this Meru Chick,she don’t have any tent so she’s not homeless at all,because most toilets get locked at night.You cannot just believe videos Guys and start handing out Chicks 80-90k just like that,hell chicks will be queing up like Trees are growing money,why not give the Chick 10k and tell her to fix herself up then get the other 70-80k and start help the old folk that are in tents on the streets or is it because they are not young chicks?

  • @jay hope Another Male SIMP(My god no wonder females are making easy money) You said"You don’t know Meru but you know she is homeless"Do you know how stupid that sounds? Frankly you also didn’t understand the Blog,the department clearly stated that you don’t need I.D to get help and that they wouldn’t refuse help to anyone,also your english and name don’t exactly make me think that you would even be entitled to Welfare in Japan.

  • I’ve read the Mominoki-blog, as a Tokyo resident for 20 years I can tell you that the blog is not entirely accurate , when applying for a welfare you will be ranked , single mothers having the highest priority and single adults are at the bottom , in my experience it took me almost six months to get a financial assistance , so yes as Meru pointed out in one of Youtube videos you will be turned down if you have no ID and now that she got her ID back it will take her six months and you will only get at most 500-700 US dollars per month depending on the ward, I have friends who work as volunteers in NGOs and they can attest how single adults are frowned upon when asking for help, there are many homeless teenage girls in Tokyo exacerbated by the pandemic in Shibuya and Shinjuku alone I see quite a lot of young girls at night, they don’t look homeless just like Meru , they live by offering adult services just to survive, Meru is a legit homeless I went to the park in Ikebukuro in Nobitas second interview with Meru, I can tell based on the background where the interview was done, there were some people there who can attest that Meru slept in the public toilet , So please stop this nonsenese accusation , There are some nice people here offering Meru aid to stay in cheap hotels that does not make her fake , her appearance in some Youtubers does not generate her money , in one of the interviews she started thinking about commiting suicide because some people are accusing her of faking it, that she should not apply for welfare , I do not know Meru I only donated 50 dollars because I know she is legit , I even saw Nobita in Ikebukuro Station a few weeks ago when I went to check out the park, I did not introduce myself but he looks legit to me with real intentions to help , So please understand the situation and not judge based on some blogger who has never experienced applying for a welfare
