Sometimes Help Comes From The Most Unlikely People

Kotaku: "It's been over a month since a 9.0 magnitude earthquake rocked northeastern Japan. Within minutes, a massive tsunami pounded the coast. Tens of thousands were either dead or missing, with many more homeless. Singer Gackt felt compelled to do something, but turned to what many Japanese would view as an unlikely ally to help - a South Korean online game company.

Gackt, who is no stranger to video games, is starring in a new role-playing game from Hangame. But he's also collaborating with Hangame for his Earthquake relief effort, Show Your Heart soon after the quake hit on March 11. Within days, the movement amassed 110 million yen from donations (over a million dollars). It's not only money for the Red Cross that Show Your Heart is amassing for donations. It's also collecting video messages from around the world to encourage those hit hardest by the quake." (Culture, GACKT)

I don't know if I'd call Gackt an "unlikely person." If there's a big disaster in the world, he'll usually be there to offer help or support. He did the same for 9/11 and the Niigata earthquake.
