For Japan With Love


For Japan with Love

Jon has been sharing images and comments from one of his friends who lives in Japan, and I can’t even imagine what they are going through. My thoughts are with the people and families who have experience this disaster. As the images continue to come in and the devastation worsens, my heart goes out to all that have been affected. Tomorrow’s bloggers’ day of silence is the very least I can do, in addition to texting REDCROSS to 90999 (which charges a $10 donation to my phone bill–it’s easy and quick, and every little bit helps.)

For Japan With Love has a direct link on the website to their fundraising page for ShelterBox. ShelterBox was one of the first organizations asked by Japan to help and were on hand on the Saturday after the quake. Each large, green ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster but typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items. Please check it out and whatever you can contribute will be so appreciated.

Anyone that has a blog can help out with this one.The aim is just raise awareness and respect and acknowledge the devastation going on in Japan.

The guidelines are simple:
1. This coming Friday, March 18th, no posts at all on your blog.
2. Blog about this beforehand.
3. Tweet and Re-Tweet this link:
4. Encourage your readers to contribute to donate shelter to Japan. Whatever anyone can contribute will be appreciated.
