for Japan with love

like pretty much everyone else, i've been reading of the awful news coming from Japan. the amount of destruction is unimaginable. and from what i've read, Japan was one of the most prepared places for a disaster like this. i have friends & some family there too...thankfully they are okay. my heart goes out to the survivors of this tragedy.
i read about For Japan With Love:


if you want to help, here are a couple of ways:
(information below from ever ours post)

fundraising:

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.

take care and stay safe out there friends.

I'm so glad your family and friends there are okay. So many people in the US think we're invincible, but we're just as vulnerable. I'm keeping the people there in my prayers.

Just wanted to let you know I've shared your post with everyone who follows me in Google Reader. There is just so much sadness right now. It's hard to put into words. Thank you for posting this.
