Australian Artist Shaun Tan’s “The Lost Thing”
Experienced in Kyoto- Isetan Art museum. The Lost Thing is a humorous film about a boy who discovers a bizarre-looking creature. It is lost and he tries to find who owns it or where it belongs, but the problem is met with indifference by everyone else. Each is unhelpful in their own way; strangers, friends, parents are all unwilling to entertain this uninvited interruption to day-to-day life. The boy feels sorry for this creature and attempts to find out where it belongs. What started as an amusing nonsensical story developed into an insightful fable. Narrated by Tim Minchin.

Startup

Charities supporting supporters
Charities could ask their taxpaying supporters to help an innovative startup and claim $10,000 tax offset. The startup might get $6,000 per taxpayer and the taxpayers get $4,000 each. If they give the $4,000 to the charity they still make money from their $4,000 tax deduction. The charity ensures that they cannot lose this $4,000 in the startup arrangements. The charity should expect to get most of the $4,000, maybe more if the startup fails and maybe much more if the startup succeeds.
