Japan

I've hesitated to write about it because, probably like you, it was just shocking - and there really are no words to convey the feelings. But, I know we are all feeling this together. Help now. Help in 6 months when the news has forgotten, and in a year when people aren't thinking of it anymore but the pain there is worse and life is still not normal. These things last.

Kate said...

My friend has just gone to Japan to help with the relief effort, but for those of us who can't do something as practical as that, there are some great ideas here!

Catita said...

I totally agree and I know I must donate, it is just a matter of time but in this painful situation like you say even 6 months from now will be great.

Marissa said...

I think we all struggled with how to deal with this in our posts. Glad you addressed it, though!

Diana Mieczan said...

Beautiful post, darling and I already donated. I think its really important! My best friend is from Tokyo. Wish you a nice evening.

Staley Mc said...

This is a great post! It's hard to blog about something like this and I think you did it perfectly.

There are so many different ways to get involved it's so great to see how everyone comes together when a country is hurting!

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

Such a great tragedy...thank you for all of the links. xx

Anna Walker said...

Graet post! You're so right, it's so hard to convey into words anything about the Tragic events in Japan, but you have accumulated so many great ideas!

Melanie's Randomness said...

I can't believe what happened. I hope they get the nuclear crisis under control too. Japan is in our thoughts.

Yes Krystal, on all our minds but words just seem, well I don't know. I'm also praying for the Red Cross and all the volunteers who have left or are on their way to do what they can. We are all connected.

I'm glad you posted on this, even though it's hard to talk about, or even process. What a gorgeous (and haunting) picture.

Emily Jane said...

Thanks for spreading awareness for such an important and heart-wrenching cause...

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

I know my husband and I have been glued to the TV. I love how you posted more sites than just redcross. Although redcross is a wonderful organization it can use your funds how they see fit even if that is a different location in need so if you really want to have your funds go to Japan you need to be careful.

Diana said...

Great roundup of ideas to support Japan! And you're so right about the pain lasting.

ivy's closet said...

These are great sites. Thanks for posting this.

Eva @ Four Leaf Clover said...

Thank you for mentioning my post, Krystal! I know what you mean.. I didn't quite know what to write either other than just ways to help. It's so great to see so many people who care and are doing what they can. I hope we start hearing some good news and more positive stories soon!

Great post hun.
What's happened in Japan is devastating, and it's really hard to talk about without feeling incredibly depressed. I just hope we all take the time to help whichever way we can.

Thanks for all the links.

Such a great post. I think there is a lot of people out there who want to help but don't know how. It's like you said, it was so shocking and my thoughts go out to Japan.

Tee, Passports and Postcards said...

Great post. Seeing the pictures of the devastation makes me really sad and now there's the radiation problem that is making the situation worse. I'm donating money though I wish there was more I could do to help.

Rose said...

I too can't articulate what I feel, I have been genuinely very very grateful every day since this happened for my beloved home here in London and I cannot begin to imagine how those people feel

Chuzai Living said...

Wow, Krystal, you're awesome. You always so many good ideas and also know a lot. I checked all the blogs you suggested. Thanks for the support for Japan. Did you listen to the song by Shakira on Lyrical Journey? It is so moving.

Thanks for these links Krystal - it's been wonderful to see the global community come to the assistance of Japan and help in any way that we can.

It's such a terrible tragedy.

It hurts my heart. What those people must be going through. It's only a matter of time before we all experience sadly. Great reminder to be prepared and buy extra dog food.
