As most are aware by now, Japan was hit by the Great Tohoku Earthquake on March 11th. The Japanese Red Cross wasted no time in kick-starting relief efforts during the aftermath of this disaster. To continue bringing in support for their efforts, the organization is reaching out through Japan’s top idols, AKB48.
Members Watanabe Mayu, Oshima Yuko,Takahashi Minami and Maeda Atsuko were featured in the Red Cross’ new CM, which highlights some of the things the Red Cross did for the disaster victims. AKB48 also contributed Team K’s new song, “Boku ni Dekiru Koto“, which would be included in the group’s new album, “Koko ni Ita Koto“.
