In the wake of Friday’s massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan, various organizations and individuals are working towards relief efforts. Among them is musician Nishikawa Takanori, also known by the name T.M.Revolution. Earlier today, he sent out a proposal on Twitter for a charity event at the end of this month, and plans are quickly progressing with the help of his followers.

Nishikawa was already planning to hold a release event at Zepp Tokyo on March 30, the day that his new album “CLOUD NINE” goes on sale. Naturally, there were talks of postponing it, like many other artists are doing with their upcoming events. However, Nishikawa said that since he has already reserved the venue, he would like to hold a charity event instead, and he asked for help from his more than 200,000 Twitter followers.

Nishikawa’s plans include donating all ticket proceeds to the relief efforts, making the event available online for free, holding a charity auction, and doing more fundraising at the event venue. He is hoping to gather other artists and creators to participate as well.

On Twitter, Nishikawa has been exchanging messages with many people who are offering to help. He admitted that he is not sure how far the plans will go, but things seem to be moving quickly. In a recent tweet, he revealed that a major company has contacted him, offering extensive support for the video streaming and online auction plans.
