I came across For Japan with Love, a Blogging Day of Silence organized by Ever Ours and Utterly Engaged, and wanted to participate. I’ve been overwhelmed with shock and sadness for the people of Japan and wasn’t sure what I could do, only one person in a country far from the disaster. In my own small way, I can participate with so many others to owe our respects to Japan for the incredible amount of loss within families and communities.
I greatly encourage you to donate to ShelterBox, the non-profit organization that will be accepting donations on behalf of For Japan with Love. ShelterBox provides kits that contain a disaster relief tent with blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, and many other vital items for a family. Please remember that any amount helps!
While I’m not blogging on Friday I hope that you are able to donate. Also consider taking time from your day to think of, pray, or whatever feels comfortable to you to remember that we’re all here on this planet together and the people of Japan need our help and support.
