A Moment of Seriousness and Kindness

*Scroll down below to see how you can help!*

We all know that Japan is in shambles.  First by Earthquake, second by tsunami, and now it is on the verge of a massive nuclear crisis.  We've all seen the reports on television and photos/videos circulating the internet.  I've chosen to share two that are a small glimpse into what we in our warm homes cannot even fathom.

Tsunami



Nuclear Explosion


How I am going to help and how YOU are going to help me...

In order to help the relief for Japan I am going to donate $0.10 cents for every "non-anonymous comment made between now and 10am EST on Tuesday March 15th (time has been extended!).*  If you aren't registered with Blogger just put your name in your comment. 

And that is not all.

I will randomly pick TWO people who comment to receive their choice of either a "Help Japan" poster or a Salvation Army Japan Relief T-shirt. 


Pass the word.  It will only do good.  


If you'd like to donate to the Red Cross yourself you can Here
Or donate directly through your itunes account



*If for whatever reason I receive more than 2000 comments (which would be insane, but incredible) I will cap the donation there in consideration for my bank account, unless someone else speaks up and would like to cover the additional comments!  Also, the two winners of the shirt or poster will be announced Tuesday and will have 48 hours to contact me to claim their prize.

What a great idea Jen! My aunt and uncle live in Japan, but luckily they are in Osaka which is south of Tokyo. They used to live in Sendai and it sounds like their friends are safe but have lost their homes and are currently staying at local hospitals.

Does it count if I comment more than once? It's always amazing to see how people join together to help others.

What a beautiful idea! And really, you don´´t need to pick me for the T-Shirt. The shipping would be to high, better add it to the Japanmoney, too, just in case you randomly pick me ;)
