Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc. announced a new plan to gather support for Fukuoka’s professional soccer team, Avispa. The ‘Avispa Support Plan’ allows customers to make monthly donations of ¥300 or ¥500 while saving on their gas or electricity costs. The special campaign includes registration certificates with the autographs of Avispa’s manager, Hasebe, for the first fifty registrants. (Later registrations can also get certificates with photocopied signatures.) Source: Avispa / Kyuden
