In light of the horrific tragedy taking place in Japan, Lydia of Ever Ours and Lucy of Utterly Engaged have put together For Japan With Love, a two part effort to help those affected by the disaster in Japan. Until last summer, I had worked for several years for the Japanese company Shu Uemura. During my time with Shu, I could not help but fall in love with so much about Japan - its culture and its deep and rich traditions, the scenery and natural beauty, the artistry and innovation...
Participating in For Japan With Love is the least I can do.
About For Japan With Love...
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.
For Japan With Love has a direct link on the website to our fundraising page for ShelterBox.
Please check it out and whatever amount 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.

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.
3. Tweet and Re-Tweet the shiznit out of the link to http://www.forjapanwithlove.com please.

Every little bit helps.

I will be participating in the Bloggers Day of Silence on Friday, March 18th and encourage my fellow bloggers, wedding or otherwise, to join us in doing the same to raise awareness of the cause.
Even though times are tough, please give what you can - going without a cup or two of coffee could go toward sheltering those who have lost everything.
