For Japan With Love

We will be participating in the Blogger’s Day of Silence, part of the For Japan with Love Disaster Relief, to show our support for all who are now suffering in Japan. That means that tomorrow, on March 18th, there will be no new posts.

We hope you will take a moment to visit the For Japan with Love website, and join us in making a donation if you can, no matter how small. All proceeds will go to ShelterBox, which 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. 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. Your donation can help change the outcome for a Japanese family in need.

A very special thank you to Ever Ours and Utterly Engaged for organizing this amazing display of love and compassion.

    Not being able to help the effected people as much as I wished I could have, it was great to see an opportunity to acknowledge and take a small action to help. Participating and spreading the word about For Japan With Love was one thing I could do!

    I donated and joined the day of silence straight away, now i am also running a “spread you love to japan” contest on Facebook that I am asking my FB liker and blogs follower to write a min 30 words message to people in Japan, and they may win one of my two lifestyle portrait session, which worth $150 each.

    By doing this I hope I can influence more people to make donation! We all could do something right??
