For Japan With Love

Ever-Ours and Utterly Engaged have teamed up to bring the blogging community this great way to raise money and show our respect and support for Japan. This info is from these two wonderful blogs:

There are two parts to it.


For Japan With Love has a direct link on the website to our 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.


Bloggers Day of Silence:

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. Please post a blog post about what you will be doing this Friday whenever possible in hopes to spread the word and whoever else would like to join in.

3. Encourage your readers to contribute to donate shelter to Japan.
Whatever anyone can contribute will be appreciated.
Every little helps.

Feel free to ask other bloggers you like to join in on this. Whatever impact we can make will be so awesome!

My heart aches for Japan. Everyone that is suffering, scared, lost, weary and sad. Please join in the Bloggers Day of Silence this Friday March 18th. Give blood, make a donation, say prayers, whatever you can do to help these people. This really is a global crisis. My blog will be silent tomorrow, the 18th to show my support of JAPAN WITH LOVE.
