Please help: For Japan With Love


By now, we've all seen the horrific photos from Japan, and heard gut wrenching stories of pain, tragedy, and suffering.  In times like these, many of us so far away feel kind of helpless, and search for ways to get involved.

Through the blogging world, I discovered a way to immediately take action.  The amazing bloggers from Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours teamed up to create a fundraising page: For Japan With Love, and picked ShelterBox as the organization to donate to.  ShelterBox was one of the first organizations asked to help in Japan, and they need our help in order provide the best disaster relief possible.  Please help if you are able - every little bit counts!! 

The ShelterBox solution in disaster response is as simple as it is effective. 

We deliver the essentials a family needs to survive in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.

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. 

This Friday, along with many other bloggers, I will be participating in the "Bloggers Day of Silence" to raise awareness.  If you are a blogger, and would like to participate as well, just head over to Utterly Engaged or Ever Ours for the details.

I think everyone’s heart is in the right place with this. I’d like to ask bloggers who are not posting however, (and blog readers!) to use their time contacting Representatives and the Japanese government in order to urge the Japanese government to permit food and supplies airdrops to Northeast Japan where people are now starving, a week after the earthquake. See a video interview with a Japan scholar on my site: http://mlleparadis.blogspot.com that explains why.

Thanks if you can help!
