    It was announced “The Ice” will make a free show on July 27 in Hachinohe, Aomori prefecture, Tohoku area. They will not sell any tickets, but invite 1400 people suffered by the earthquake and tsunami.
    All of skaters hope victims have a good time and participate in the show without performance fees.

    Thank you everyone for contributing to the fundraiser.

    We also have new video messages from skaters that we'll upload soon. So stay tuned.

    The next fundraiser will take place at the Finlandia Trophy next week. And everyone still can join us easily by donating through the website. :)

    Six months have passed since the tragedy and the people in Japan still need our support. We do not forget and are always with you.

    Skating Friends Support Japan has hit the Grand Prix now. Watch out for our banner at each event and for the Skating Friends postcards. You can also purchase a Skating Friends pin for a donation. If you are interested, PM me. We cannot have a booth at the events, unfortunately, but I can meet you at events during practice.

    Here is Mirai Nagasu's video message: http://www.nyjalccfundraising.com/e/skatingfriends

    Thank you for your support!

    The Savchenko/Szolkowy Trophy was auctioned off for 213 Euros and we raised another 252 Euros at German Nationals last weekend in Oberstdorf. So we are at 83 percent now:

    It would be great if we fulfill our goal of 10 000 USD by the end of the season when our action ends. Please join us if you haven't yet. Thank you!

    One year has passed since the earthquake-tsunami catastrophy hit Japan. Many efforts have been made to rebuild the affected areas, and it is amazing what has been done. However, there are still many people in need and the Fukushima nuclear disaster is far from over. Skating Friends Support Japan is just a small fundraiser but we are proud to have raised more than 10,000 US Dollars.
    The fundraiser will continue until the end of the season, so please help us to raise some more money for the victims of the catastrophy.
    You can watch now Daisuke Takahashi's message for Skating Friends Support Japan:

    The last event of the season starts today with the World Team Trophy and our fundraiser "Skating Friends Support Japan" will come to a closure as well on April 30. So this is your last chance to contribute. We have raised 10,960 US Dollars so far, which is wonderful and we want to thank everyone who participated in one way or the other.

    The survey has been opened in public by National Diet of Japan, Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission.
    It says it was not a national disaster, but a man-made disaster.
    And the tragedy has not finished yet, but has been going on.

    Thanks billions for your support for Japan, everyone!
