For Japan With Love

Thursday, March 17, 2011

This is for all of the mothers, fathers, grandparents, children, writers, accountants, farmers, waiters, lovers, friends, etc. caught up in this horrible disaster. It seems so far away from my small world, but truly it's not and I wish I could do more.

To participate in the Bloggers Day of Silence (tomorrow, March 18th), along with so many others, visit here for more information. For more info about Shelter Box go here.

thanks for this, AR! I'm a big supporter of ShelterBox. How they get those boxes to the most dangerous and remote areas of the world is inspiring.

I was also born in Japan, my mother's Japanese and I lived there for quite a few years after college. This tragedy has been hard to watch. I'm very grateful for the support and kindness of people around the world. I really hope things don't get any worse than they are already.

Of course I saw this post too late to be silent but Im glad to have a lead on a worthwhile charity.

mari - It is a wonderful organization. I can't imagine seeing this tragedy happening if I was Japanese. I moved to London only a week or so after hurricane Katrina hit and it was so hard to watch that unfold from another country.
