I hope this isn't too late to post, but there was word over the weekend that Hilary, after her short tour of Japan had been canceled, is putting on 3 separate concerts to benefit the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Details about tickets/donations and contacts as well as location info are all on the links.
