GACKT Visits Earthquake Memorial Services in Iwate and Miyagi

Musician GACKT, founder of the Show Your Heart Foundation for disaster victims, visited the three memorial events in the Iwate and Miyagi Prefectures yesterday, March 11th, on the anniversary of 2011’s Tohoku earthquake.

At 2:46 pm, the moment the 9.0 magnitude quake shook the region exactly a year before, GACKT participated in a moment of silence at the Minami Sanriku Bayside Arena in Miyagi and offered flowers to the altar. Afterwards GACKT stated, “3.11 is a date which we can’t forget. To bring relief to victims soon, we must one by one start seeing things in a new light.”

GACKT stood alongside actor Kawasaki Mayo and the members of YELLOW FRIED CHICKENz. More than two hundred million yen (~ 24 million USD) in funds have been donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society.

Two hundred million yen is around 2.4 million USD I think. Unless it's 2 billion yen?

And about this article, bless you Gackt. It made me glad that everyone is doing something, even for a little bit.

Did he dye his hair back to black to show respect?

He said in a tweet response a month ago I think that he had wanted to change his hair back to black but management wanted him to keep it for a little longer to keep more consistency with the release dates of PV's/appearances to promote the YFC album and stuff like that. I always like whatever hairstyle/color he has but natural black always looks good on him and suits his complexion best.

I've always liked him better with black hair... but I don't real mind, I just didn't really like how short his hair was.

That's really great. I'm glad they don't forget the people over there

Such a good man. Don't know much about him aside from the posts I see from time to time here but he's very respectable from what I learn.
