Atsuku sent this request: "If you find a donation campaign or something by Red Cross or other organizations, would you please join it?  So many people lost their houses and they don't have enough heating system in gyms and so on where they are now.  It is still very cold in the eastern northern part of Japan.  When I was watching a news about rescuing people left in buildings, it was snowing." Send help through the Red Cross.
