Due to the tragic events in Japan, the bloggers behind Ever Ours and Utterly Engaged have teamed up together to help fundraising efforts for Japan and have handpicked ShelterBox as the organisation to donate to.
ShelterBox provide 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.
Bloggers Day of Silence:
Anyone 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.
3. Tweet and Re-Tweet the link to http://www.forjapanwithlove.com/ please
4. Encourage your readers to contribute to donate shelter to Japan
So my usual Friday Blog Love post will be coming on Saturday instead.
