radiation leaks. People are without the basic necessities of food, water and shelter. It doesn't seem fair, or right, that we are here living our lives like normal while half way around the world people's lives have been permanently altered.
I read Annie's post today and it suddenly became very obvious what my March Giving Project would be. Her idea was such a good one that I wish I had thought of it myself. But since I didn't, I'm at least glad she did.
I'm forfeiting the rest of our March budget and donating $150 to the Red Cross, and in addition, for every comment left here on this post I will donate an additional $5 to the Red Cross, up to $300. No specific "rules" need to be met, just say hi or share any other ways you know of to help. You can go here to make a specific donation to the Red Cross' relief efforts in Japan. Visit this site for more ways to help through different organizations.
I felt like a jerk posting about nail polish on Friday, so I'm following my gut and taking the next couple of days off from blogging, but will return on Friday.
