For the past week, I’ve been thinking of how I could contribute and help out in the relief efforts to Japan. Lucky for me, Ever Ours & Utterly Engaged (two of my favorite blogs), are dedicating one day to bring everyone together to do something “For Japan With Love“. Each donation helps someone in need and each post that gets reblogged and tweets that get retweeted increases awareness. And this Friday, blogs across the web are vowing a day of silence for Japan. For the lives that were lost and to those who are fighting for their lives.
Visit www.forjapanwithlove.com; donate and share it! The organization of choice is ShelterBox.
ShelterBox provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most. 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.
SPREAD THE WORD
This takes only a few minutes of our time but the power of one message that can be spread across the globe can be life changing. I invite all my fellow bloggers to join me, Ever Ours, Utterly Engaged and others to participate in Bloggers Day of Silence for Japan this Friday, March 18th. My blog will be silent as in no posts in honor and respect for what has happened in Japan.
