for japan with love

If you're anything like me, you've spent the last week reading, watching, and pouring over photos from Japan. I fear. I worry. I feel for them. Their families. Their friends. Their lives. 
But the difference is, I can turn the computer off, change the tv channel, and go about my life, in my happy home, with my healthy family nearby. 
They don't have that option. 
I feel so helpless, and I am happy to see so many people taking action to help.

Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours have teamed up and  put together 
For Japan with Love.

They have set up a donation page for Shelterboxes.
"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."

Every little donation helps.

See here for more info.

I'll also be participating in the bloggers day of silence on Friday--and turning off the computer to spend extra time with my littles. Hope you can too:)
