For Japan With Love

Tomorrow, Friday, March 18th, we at Hiving Out will be taking part in the Bloggers Day of Silence in order to take pause and acknowledge the devastation going on in Japan.

Organized by the blogs Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours, these bloggers have also joined together with ShelterBox, one of the first major charitable organizations to help after the quake, in order create a fundraising site called For Japan With Love.

By donating to For Japan With Love you could help send some much needed supplies as well as an emergency shelter to people in need:
"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."

Each whole box costs $1,000 (US), so For Japan With Love is hoping to raise enough to send 5 boxes so please donate if you can.

Thank you and have a lovely weekend - we'll see you Monday!
