Tomorrow (Friday 18th March 2011) heralds a day of silence for bloggers around the world as a mark of respect for the victims of Japan's recent disaster so I'm joining in and will not be posting.
The following is a quote from one of the organisers Utterly Engaged:
Bloggers Day of Silence:
Anyone that has a blog can help out with this one.
The aim is just raise awareness and respect and acknowledge the devastation going on in Japan.
The guidelines are simple.
1. This coming Friday, March 18th, no posts at all on your blog.
2. Please post a blog post about what you will be doing this Friday whenever possible in hopes to spread the word and whoever else would like to join in. You all can check out what Lydia of Ever-Ours did for her’s here or how we did ours here and do it your way if you’d like. We’ll be posting a reminder post on Thursday evening on my blog too.
3. Tweet and Re-Tweet the shiznit out of the link to http://www.forjapanwithlove.com please.
4. Encourage your readers to contribute to donate shelter to Japan.
Whatever anyone can contribute will be appreciated.
Every little helps.
Feel free to ask other bloggers you like to join in on this. Whatever impact we can make will be so awesome.
If you have a blog and want to join in and spread the word please write a post and leave a comment over on Utterly Engaged to let them know you're taking part. I will be taking part by making and donating humanitarian supplies/kits with the help of my children and funds to the humanitarian aid.
As I sit here in my warm home with running clean water and knowing The Native's and The SM are all safe from harm, I am filled with much gratitude. “For unto whomsoever much is given,” much shall be required. (Luke 12:48.)
I have been given much. It is my turn to give.........
