Tomorrow, AFOMFT will be participating in the FOR JAPAN WITH LOVE BLOGGERS DAY OF SILENCE to acknowledge and help raise funds and awareness for the devastation going on in Japan. You will not see a post here tomorrow; instead, I hope that you'll take the few minutes you usually spend here to stop by the For Japan With Love site and contribute if you are able to do so.
All of the donations made on the For Japan With Love site 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 the situation at hand 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.
In less than a week, this effort has raised more than $15,000 and every little bit helps so we're hoping this will encourage you to open your wallet - every AFOMFT reader who makes a donation will be eligible for 5 additional entries into all giveaways through March 31st. That means if you donate to the Red Cross and to For Japan With Love, you'll earn 10 extra entries. So please, visit For Japan With Love and do some good. Hopefully you'll win something fabulous in the process!
