My heart breaks for the people of Japan after the devastation of the past week and I know we are all searching for some way, any way, that we can lend a hand. Tomorrow, Friday March 18th, EAD will be participating in a bloggers day of silence in honor of Japan, organized by Ever Ours and Utterly Engaged. Those amazing ladies also created For Japan With Love. Any donations you make there will go to ShelterBox, an organization that provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most.
Amazingly, through the power of blogs, Twitter, and Facebook, over $18,000 has already been raised for Japan. You can donate right here. Every little bit helps. Join in and let’s be a beacon of light and hope in a dark, sad time.
Hug your loved ones this weekend, kiss your little ones and furbabies, be grateful. And send love, strength, and hope to Japan.
