People could buy clothes or accessories and all the money will go to charities to help the community for the homeless and the furry community (animals).

 In Japan, scientists and engineers have worked together to create the maglev train. Maglev means magnetic levitation. Unlike other trains, this train does not have any wheels, but instead runs with magnets.

Imagine driving to work, and you’re going to be late because of all the traffic. The maglev train was built for this purpose. This train makes a faster, easier trip for anybody in a hurry. It does not pollute the environment as other trains do.
