The amount of damage from the Japan disaster is still not known. But the casualties are now in the thousands, and believed to be in the ten thousands.

Sebastiano and I want to return to Tokyo as soon as everything is less volatile. We feel that for now, foreigners especially can help the most by raising money for reputable charities in Japan. We think supporting the professionals – medical teams, rescue crews – is the best course of action for the time being.

Seba and La Carmina are planning many events this week in Los Angeles to raise money. We collaborated with a well-known band (to be revealed soon), and collected donations at Mr. Black for Medecins Sans Frontiers / Doctors Without Borders. (Seba crafted a “Donate To Japan” sign in less than 10 minutes – impressive!)

Thanks to everyone at Mr Black LA for generously donating. And to The Orlando Hotel for hosting and supporting us — we’re overjoyed to be back.

Some updates… My schedule for the next few weeks remains unclear. My Belgian TV show and the NOH8 campaign in Japan are certainly postponed.

Fortunately, Yukiro made it to Sweden after a harrowing Narita airport experience! Many of our friends in Tokyo have moved to areas such as Kansai and Kageshima, just as a precaution.

Tonight, we will be raising awareness and funds at On The Rox, the weekly LA party by Semi Precious Weapons (who toured with Lady Gaga). Hope to see you there.

La Carmina and Sebastiano Serafini are sponsoring the Q Pop art auction for Japan this Friday, in downtown LA. The Japanese clothing store is now accepting donations of artwork. All proceeds will go to select local hospitals, shelters, and relief groups in all affected areas in Japan.

Please join us at the silent auction on Friday, March 18th from 7-11pm. Q Pot Shop is located at 128 Astronaut E S Onizuka St, Los Angeles.

Keep us posted about you and your friends. How are you doing? Have you been taking action to help Japan?

PS: I’ve gotten some emails, and I think people should be more concerned about Sendai and NOT about whether they can still take shopping vacations in Tokyo in a few weeks. Not the time to be a tourist…

    Really? People think of shopping instead of the agony happing a few hundred kilometres above Tokyo. They’d better be considering Takuya Angels then…

    PS: I think it’s awesome you do fundraising at a Semi Precious Weapons party.

    Seba seems to enjoy arts and crafts. lol
    As soon as I get my paycheck, I’m donating as much as I am able to. So many online personalities are also setting up donation events, as well as some people I know are doing an anime based event. It warms my heart to see everybody helping.

    Seba seems to liek his arts and crafts ^^ !

    And I cant belive the people who seem to care more about shopping than this horrible event? Grahh! >.<

  • bluegirl

    I can’t believe all people are thinking about is shopping! I’m going to try and donate to the red cross because I live all the way on the other side of the U.S. and I do not have the money to do anything else. At least I’m trying.

    You go girl, I am so proud of you and thankful for all your efforts on behalf of our brothers and sisters in Japan.

    Seeing so many people help out and fundraise like this makes me cry a bit. I get emotional sometimes.

    I’m also going to be participating in a fundraiser at my school!

    Let’s do our best for everyone!
