The sun broke through the rain clouds Sunday morning as Josh Duhamel and Fergie sprinted for a cause at the Youth Run for Japan in Santa Monica.Inspired by the devastation faced by the Japanese people in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami, actor Josh once again partnered with the American Red Cross, following up with his fundraiser last year for Haiti. “When I saw some of those images come out of Japan, I’d never seen anything like it,” he said compassionately.It was a close call for Fergie and her band The Black Eyed Peas, who were in Japan to shoot a video a mere week before disaster struck. “Leaving there we had such a positive vibe and then this happened,” she said. “We were all tripping out that we were just there in Japan. It was just a wonderful chance for us to give a love letter back to Japan.” (ETonline.com)

Chieko Rambo practices the Japanese harp, hoping it will eventually strike up donations at a charity event for disaster relief in Japan, “They have tsunami and surrounded by cold water and cold weather and just thinking about being there is hard for us.” Chieko is an administrator at a Japanese school called Orlando Hoshuko Inc, many of her students are worried about their relatives back home, “The frustrating thing, they can’t call the phone doesn’t get through and they don’t know where is the family and can’t contact them.”
She’s still trying to find out who needs help, “We are sending emails and asking whose families affected and still thinking what we can do.” Her mother and brother are also in Japan and says they’re safe. But she worries what kind of impact it will have on her homeland, “They are just shocked by this disaster.”
被災地応援と募金のために行われた葉加瀬太郎氏のロンドンコンサートの報告とメッセージ Taro Hakase was one of many people who organised charity events in support of Japan tsunami disaster. The concert in the video took place in London 17.03.2011. The message is to raise awareness of the importance of willingness to support those in need, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant the act maybe. I hope to contribute in a small way through means that are available to me. If you can spread the message of support to those who need it the most, by linking the video to other sites, downloading it and showing it anywhere available to you, that would be amazing! Anyhow, thanks for watching, please do spread the positive message of the act of giving, either in materials, time, hugs or just a few kind words…
