The floor is yours......

I hope that when things stabilize a bit and everyone has a chance to catch their collective breaths that the skating community will do a wonderful and large-scale benefit show for Japan. I think anyone and everyone who wants to participate should and if it could get folks who might otherwise not be on the same ice together (both Evan and Johnny for instance), well, what a wonderful spirit to bring to the effort to help.

Of course since Ilia won his gold in Nagano and loves Japan very much I do think he'd be a natural to participate. Tara might uncover her recovered skating skills for the benefit of Japan.

I'm sure anyone that was asked would want to be a part of it.

Past Japanese champions like Takeshi Honda, Yuka Sato and Shizuka Arakawa would be good, too.

Plushenko, of course!:plush: Michelle Kwan, too, would be a huge draw.

I would think that Mirai would be a natural for your headliner.

As far as ticket price...when I think what I would pay for SOI (as if it comes to my hometown!!) I would pay equal to that to know that in some way I am helping the citizens of Japan.

Great idea by the way and I hope you or someone else is able to pull this off.:)
