For Japan With Love

I'm sure you've already seen pictures like this, but isn't it absolutely devastating? Just breaks my heart.

Hey friends, I'll be joining Bird's Party in a Blogger's Day of Silence in order to raise awareness in respect of the recent disasters in Japan

Please join us too! Anything to raise awareness helps!

Here's the info from the Japan With Love website:


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. You all can check out what Lydia of Ever-Ours did for her’s here or how we did ours here and do it your way if you’d like.  We’ll be posting a reminder post on Thursday evening on my blog too.
3. Tweet and Re-Tweet the shiznit out of the link to please.
4. 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.

If you have more questions, feel free to email and/or
