Every day at The Little Umbrella, we have the opportunity to celebrate families and appreciate our newest little bundles of joy. We are so lucky to have this blog, to see and share happy moments of family love. However, right now in Japan, many families are suffering tremendous loss, confusion, and pain. Not only have they lost friends and loved ones, but basic needs like food and shelter are now scarce for many. We will be participating in the Blogger's Day of Silence, part of the For Japan with Love Disaster Relief, to show our support for all who are now suffering in Japan. That means that tomorrow, on March 18th, there will be no new posts.
We hope you will take a moment to visit the For Japan with Love website, and join us in making a donation if you can, no matter how small. All proceeds will go to ShelterBox, which provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most. 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. Your donation can help change the outcome for a Japanese family in need.
