For Japan with Love

My dearest Beauty Nerds,

As you can tell from my blog post earlier this week, I am deeply troubled by the tragic events in Japan. It seems as though every time I turn on the news, I find myself fighting back tears. Shortly after writing my post on Monday, I discovered that the wonderful girls at Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours put together a campaign called ‘For Japan with Love’. Along with many other bloggers, we are donating to Shelterbox, an organization which helps provide disaster relief tents, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other essential items. Now more than ever, the people of Japan, especially those in Sendai who have been hit the hardest by the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck on March 11, are in dire need of survival items. Every small amount makes a difference, so please help us raise money for Shelterbox. You can access the ‘For Japan with Love’ fund by clicking here. If you are in Canada, you can also donate through Shelterbox Canada. Finally, we have all pledged to take a day of silence tomorrow, March 18th 2011 to honour those that have been lost from this tragic event. This is a cause that means a lot to me. Even if you are not able to make a donation, please share this post on twitter, facebook or even email it to your friends and family to help us raise awareness. I am deeply humbled that I have been given the chance to network with other fellow bloggers who have such big, big hearts. I want to give a special thanks to Utterly Loved and Ever Ours who has been the brainchild behind this campaign.

I know you have big hearts too Beauty Nerds… I thank you in advance for supporting me in this mission. Bloggers Day of Silence is tomorrow, meaning I will post again on Monday!

xoxo,

    I think everyone’s heart is in the right place with this. I’d like to ask bloggers who are not posting however, (and blogreaders!) to use their time contacting Representatives and the Japanese government in order to urge the Japanese government to permit food and supplies airdrops to Northeast Japan where people are now starving, a week after the earthquake. See a video interview with a Japan scholar on my site: http://mlleparadis.blogspot.com that explains why.

    Thanks if you can help!
