The Press Release:
Yoshiki – internationally renowned, composer, classically-trained pianist, rock drummer and leader of the rock group X JAPAN – has donated $100,000 — $50,000 to the Australian Red Cross to aid victims of the Australian wildfires and $50,000 to the Rainforest Trust’s Conservation Action Fund – to two of the world’s most urgent environmental issues through his 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization Yoshiki Foundation America.
“Conservation and sustainability are two of my primary concerns,” said YOSHIKI. “No matter what country you are from, we are all one planet. This is an issue that concerns everyone, and I hope more people will join this cause.”
YOSHIKI attended the Golden Globes this year and was moved by the outpouring of support he saw at the event.

Yoshiki has been supporting disaster relief and music education for children over the years.
