For Japan with Love

When tragedy strikes, I tend to have a huge feeling of helplessness. I know I am not alone in watching the horrific events unfold in Japan. But instead of feeling helpless, let’s do something about it! The fabulous Lydia at Ever Ours & the Ladies of  Utterly Engaged have teamed up to raise awareness about For Japan with Love suggesting that donations can be made to the amazing ShelterBox. I am so inspired to see these amazing women take a leadership role to make a difference. Wiley Valentine will be contributing to ShelterBox as well as joining with this fabulous group by taking part in A Bloggers Day of Silence this Friday. Our thoughts and prayers are with Japan. Let’s all take a bit more time every day to smell the roses and be thankful for all that we take for granted!

ShelterBox 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.”  (via ever ours) If you’d like to contribute, click here.
