For Japan With Love.
After hearing about the tragedy in Japan, I knew I needed to do something, ANYTHING, to help. Once I heard about Utterly Engaged and Lydia from Ever Ours teaming up to create Japan with Love, a fundraising program through Shelter Box, I was ON it. In addition to donations, bloggers have joined together out of respect for the victim's in Japan by making Friday March 18, 2011 a Day of Silence in the blogosphere world.
From Utterly Engaged:
ShelterBox provide 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.
Please join us. We know it won’t save the nation, but we strongly believe every little helps. Whatever you can contribute, we truly appreciate.
Also, if you are a blogger, please join us in a Day of Silence this coming Friday, March 18th. All this means is no posts on Friday, in memory for the victims of Japan. However, we do ask you post a little announcement the day before, Thursday, March 17th, that you are doing so and to ask your readers to join in donating and link this page on your blog post announcement.
Everyday is another day to be grateful for all that we have.
Will you join us???
