{please help!} For the Love of Japan {please pass along}

The blogging world never seems to stop amazing me. A few days ago the ladies at Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours wrote a post about Friday, March 18th being a blogger day of silence for Japan. As of last night at 9:00pm, they had already raised $19,500.00, 300% more then their goal. All of this has been done by the amazing blogging community and it makes me smile. PLEASE HELP along with the others!

I will not be posting throughout the weekend to join in the blogging silence. The images in Japan are saddening and every penny can assist them in helping out the families over there. Just imagine the cold, wet conditions that they are living in. Most people have no food, no electricity, no water, no shelter and possibly have lost loved ones. I was talking to my mom tonight about the awful saddening things happening over there and after our call it made me realize, the little you can do spread the word and help, it all matters! Who knows how long this will take to assist with and everything is needed.

The images are sad. To think of the little kids, the families, the elderly, everything that has been washed away within a quick time is really sad. Please help the great organization Shelter Box. This organization was one of the first ones in Japan to assist. The organization helps out with large, green shelter boxes tailored to a disaster, they typically contain a dis
aster 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. Anything you can donate, money, your company has products to send along, send it. Thank you in advance!


Thank you!
