For Japan With Love

I wanted to bring to your attention another special project going on, For Japan With Love, initiated by Lydia from Ever Ours and Lucy and Henny from Utterly Engaged.  Once again, bloggers are banding together to make a difference and help in any way we can, and I will be participating as well via my Jars of Love project.  With the amazing success from Operation Layla last week, we were able to raise almost $5,000 (maybe more?) in two days, and as the other ladies set off on a bake sale I am going to shift my focus over to the devastation in Japan.  I cannot even put in to words how this tragedy makes me feel - absolutely heartbroken for those affected by this catastrophic tragedy and feeling the reality check of the "impending quake" that will someday hit San Francisco.  So, I will be donating all proceeds from Jars of Love to For Japan With Love for the next few days as part of this mission.

Additionally, I will be participating in the Bloggers Day of Silence this Friday, March 18 to take time away from the computer to enjoy the company of those who I hold dear.  Bloggers {Unveiled} will resume next Friday, March 25.

  3. That is such a sad thing! We have a fault line that runs on the East side of Missouri that they say will go off eventually. The last time it went off church bells in Boston Mass rang.
