A Blog's Day of Silence

I spend a lot of time on this blog discussing shelter. Unfortunately Japan has experienced a tragic and massive loss of shelter as a result of last week's earthquake and tsunami. The girls behind Utterly Engaged and Lydia at Ever Ours came up with a way for bloggers to raise money for shelter and emergency supplies for the people of Japan by announcing a blogging day of silence on Friday. In just a matter of days a small community of bloggers have surpassed their fund raising goal by over 100%! To help give Japan temporary shelter, you can donate to Shelterbox USA. Each green box contains the basic necessities needed for a shelter which include a relief tent for a large family, blankets, water storage and purification tools, cooking stove, and other vital needs that have been destroyed by mother nature. To donate or help out in any way visit
