After Shota Yokoyama's passing, friend fo him and his wife, Aurélie, have come together to begin a fundraiser to aid in paying for all the tour and funeral expenses, as well as try to take care of the family Shota left behind. Fans can donate as well, and the campaign will be around for the next two days! Share the campaign to help make it known.

The fundraiser will be held via the French website Leetchi, which accepts credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, and Bleue). Given that not everyone has a credit card, AVO has agreed to make donations on the behalf of these people through PayPal:
1. Transfer money through the FAMILY AND FRIENDS option to email@example.com
2. Add a message saying ReaLove, and include your name if you wish.
(The entire blog with info is here)
The donation is not a requirement for those who want to just send messages, but for those who would like to, even just €5.00 is fine. All Euro count and help in supporting Aurélie and Shota's family. Money can be donated until December 20th, and the deadline will be extended if necessary.
