What you can do to help

By now I'm pretty sure everyone's heard about the horrible earthquake and tsunami in Japan. When I see the outpouring of support after a tragedy like this, it really warms my heart. All of a sudden, there's less snarkiness and more compassion on all the social networks. It's like suddenly everyone gets how important it is to care about your fellow human beings. What would be fabulous is if everyone could treat each other this way all the time.
There are a ton of ways you can help the Japanese devastated by this disaster. Here are just a couple:

Maureen Johnson is sponsoring a Shelterbox drive once again, and if you donate, you can win some fabulous prizes (think signed books).

There's always the American Red Cross, who sends relief all over the world. You can click the link above or text REDCROSS to 90999.

Please do what you can to help.

  1. It's tragic and terrifying at the same time. My company is owned by a Japanese parent company, and the emails passing through here at work today have been pretty devastating.

    May the Buddha of Compassion hold them in the palm of his hand and relieve them of their suffering.
