Join me, and bloggers nationwide, tomorrow for a Bloggers Day of Silence. If you have a blog, don’t post tomorrow. Rather than blogging… or reading a blog on Friday, give to ShelterBox.org and keep Japan in your thoughts and in your prayers. There are so many that are suffering right now (6,406 confirmed dead, 2,409 injured and 10,259 still missing) and could use your blessings.
And if you’re wondering what ShelterBox is. It’s an organization that 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.
Thank you to the ladies at Ever Ours and Utterly Engaged for organizing this fabulous idea that has raised over $20,000 already! You can keep track of our progress and give right now at ShelterBox.org.
I couldn’t imagine having my home washed away, losing a loved one, fearing nuclear contamination… My prayers are with you Japan and I’m simply speechless…
