{Blogger's Day of Silence} For Japan With Love

  We have all seen the devastation that the earthquake and tsunami caused when they hit Japan. The images and video are heartbreaking. So many will struggle to survive the cold and harsh conditions with very limited food, water and shelter. 
  Two amazing ladies, Lydia {Ever Ours} & Lucy {Utterly Engaged} have teamed up and organized {For Japan with Love} a fundraiser for earthquake and tsunami relief.  
"All of the donations {For Japan, With Love} will go to ShelterBox, which 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."

 Along with many others...
I will be participating in the "Bloggers Day of Silence" on Friday in support of the disaster relief efforts being organized for the people in Japan.
Please join us this Friday March 18th in the 
Bloggers’ Day of Silence. 
My blog will be silent, which means no posts will be featured to honor and respect what has happened in Japan.
My sincerest thoughts and prayers are with the people of Japan.

Blogger friends if you're interested in participating, please contact lydia@ever-ours.com or info@utterlyengaged.com for more information


  1. I did contact them about wanting to participate but heard nothing back. Is there anything special I need to do other than posting about it? - Karen

  2. Hi MeenyMoe,

    Here is additional info that I found on utterlyengaged's blog:

    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.
