    Message from the Russian Skating Federation to Japan

    Poem dedicating to Japan

    The earth gave a groan of pain.
    All of world was shocked by nature force.
    Water flushed anything to the deep sea.

    But the sun rises in the east, no matter what happens.
    Earthquake or tsunami cannot win against light.

    We wish our God keep lives of anyone on the earth.

    We wish
    there will be a lot of parks Sakura bloom,
    there will be a lot of parks white birches bloom,
    birds will sing spring songs
    and flags will be raised up for congratulation on victories.

    Children desire adults will shake hands with friends,
    and will not forget we are in a family on the earth.

    I am such a dumb**
    I clicked through the site and wanted to donate to your cause and I accidentally donated to the whole site.
    It is no big deal as it will still arrive at the same centre but I wanted to say thank you for doing this with the donation as well.
    Crap.

    Thank you for donating. Too bad it is not listed on the Skating Friends site, but as you say, it all goes to the Japanese-American Lions Club anyway. I just don't know how you did it. I clicked on our site and going from there I didn't even find another donation site.

    It took me quite a while even.
    I tried to sign up and then I signed in to make a donation side myself (which I never wanted - I only wanted to donate...) and then I clicked from there on and finally found a way to donate only to later find out that it was not to the Skating Friends but the Lions club in general.
    I guess it took an enormous amount of stupidity to even accomplish that.

    Ok, so everyone who wants to donate, please keep in mind that you don't have to sign in or anything (unless you want to open your own fundraising site, which you are welcome to do). You just need to click on the red "donate now" button on the "Skating Friends Support Japan" site (http://www.nyjalccfundraising.com/e/skatingfriends) which is a subsite of the Japanese-American Lions Club fundraising website.

    Thank you!

    Thanks a lot, Eislauffan and everyone who supports Japan.

    Takahiko Kozuka visited 5 temporary shelters in Miyagi prefecture with Seiko Hashimoto, the president of JSF and a couple of speed skaters.
    They played with children and cheered up Hanyu and local skaters who lost their home rink by the disasters.
    http://hochi.yomiuri.co.jp/sports/wi...m?from=related

    And he will use his prize money in the World to buy vegetables and etc. which got damage on sales caused by a rumor in disaster areas.
    He and Mao have a plan to invite victims to their ice show.
    http://hochi.yomiuri.co.jp/sports/wi...m?from=related

    Daisuke Takahashi also has a plan to continue making charity shows after he will come back on the ice. He got surgery and removed the screw from his knee.

    I know it won't make a huge difference considering the size of the tragedy but the Berlin radio station 94.3 rs2 had 15 year old Saskia Matsui and her family flown into Germany. Saskia is a skater too and will be able to train for free in Germany for the time being.

    Clemens Brummer who did an internship in Japan last year will be mentoring her while in Germany hoping to make the move a little bit easier

    I think that each effort to help is important and counts. When someone does something and helps just one person it can inspire others to follow the example. It always makes a difference. If everyone helps just a little bit, there will be a lot of help in the end.

    Cool that Philippe Candeloro will skate in Japan! He was very popular when he competed. I remember how the ice was covered with flowers and gifts after he skated at Worlds in 1994!

    "Skating Friends Support Japan" is now active at the Adult Competition. We are selling donated souvenirs. All money will be donated to our fundraiser at the end.
