For Japan With Love: Will you join us for a Bloggers Day of Silence tomorrow?Thursday, March 17, 2011C Riches
Hi guys, tomorrow we'll be joining our friends at Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours in a collective Bloggers Day of Silence, in order to raise awareness in respect of the recent disasters in Japan.
We may be living far away, but together we can certainly do a our bit to help! Please keep reading to see how you too can join...
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 SilenceAnyone 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.

4. Encourage your readers to contribute to donate shelter to Japan.
