On March 14th, J-rock band GLAY donated 20 million yen (~$240,000 USD) to aid with the disaster relief through the Asahi Shimbun Social Welfare Organization.

Members TAKURO, HISASHI, JIRO, and TERU expressed, "In midst of the continuing aftershocks, we hope we can be of even a little help to the people who are suffering in the disaster ... We will continue praying that the damages don't escalate further."

GLAY has actively done charity work in the past, keeping in mind the following message: "Is there something we can do for society, other than singing?". Last year, they donated 93 uniforms (valued at ~$12,000 USD) to students at a middle school in the bankrupt city of Yubari, with TAKURO and TERU handing them out personally. When Miyazaki prefecture had a problem with foot-and-mouth disease, they donated 1 million yen (~$12,000 USD) through a local news agency.
