Producer Yuko Arakawa’s comment:

 

We had the help, support, and love of many people that volunteered their time and energy to spread the word and make this event viral. We had a great team!

 

3.11 Project is an on-going project that will continue to raise funds for the victims of northern Japan that were affected by the Tsunami, Earthquake, and Nuclear Radiation. It will take many years for this area to fully recover. We will pursue this objective through the sustained organization of different creative projects in years to come, such as performance art, music concerts, and live shows. We hope to keep finding new ways to support and show our love for JAPAN.
