{ Please Help } For Japan With Love… Update

You all are so amazing. The support from the blogging world has been far beyond what we at UtterlyEngaged and Ever Ours had ever imagine. There are SO many huge and giving hearts.

We are getting a little overwhelmed with so many inquiries. So we have decided to just have this here as our official detail blog post about For Japan With Love.

forjapanwithlove_blog2

There are two parts to it.

Fundraising:

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 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. 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.
3. Tweet and Re-Tweet the shiznit out of the link to http://www.forjapanwithlove.com please.
4. Encourage your readers to contribute to donate shelter to Japan.
Whatever anyone can contribute will be appreciated.
Every little helps.

Feel free to ask other bloggers you like to join in on this.  Whatever impact we can make will be so awesome.

If you’d like to join in, please leave a comment with your blog name and a link too. We would like to acknowledge who will be participating and give them our thanks. Grab the flyer above and either of the badges below and feel free to use it in your post.

Thank you so much for all that everyone has done so far. It’s been completely amazing and so awesome to watch. Feeling so thankful to have such great support out there.

Again, if you’d like to participate in the Bloggers Day of Silence this Friday, March 18th, please leave a comment with your blog name and link. Our Thursday evening reminder post will consist of everyone involved.

xoxo,

Henny & Lucia

I know I'm a little late to the post (I've been away on Spring Break), but I would still like to participate, if possible. I wrote up an article today on your amazing donation efforts and donated myself this morning. Here's the link to my blog: http://createcooksurvivelawschool.blogspot.com/ Thanks for organizing such a great fundraiser!

Hi, I am Japanese and live in California. I knew this event in one of the blogs, but unfortunately I just read this article after 18, so I didn't get the chance to join the Bloggers Day of Silence. I was so impressed reading your article and to learn of this event. I thank you for your support. I introduced your event to Japanese who live in Japan in my blog.

I originally intended to post about what happened in Japan today since it was a week from today but when I saw this this morning, I decided it was a great idea to join. I have two blogs, one having been inspired due to the incident! Thank you so much for the wonderful idea and to everyone else who participated. http://emilove17.blogspot.com http://lunaticktock.blogspot.com
