Japan

I'm not a great fan of public displays of giving but this seemed a good way of getting as many people as possible to be aware of the Shelterbox scheme. Shelterbox send boxes with essential supplies such as tents, blankets etc, which feels like a practical way to help. I'm joining in and won't be here tomorrow....


You can get involved too and can make a donation here.
And if you've got a blog you can join in with the bloggers day of silence and promote the scheme - details here.

  1. Well done Gina - this is a great idea. We have already donated - those desperate people need all the help we can give them.

  9. That is such a worthwhile charity isn't it. I was so torn between them and the Red Cross, so my private gives have gone to shelterbox and my public display of giving(!) is from my Etsy shop to the Red Cross. :)
