For Japan With Love - One Year Later

Today marks the one-year anniversary of Japan's devastating tsunami and earthquake. I cannot believe that a year has already gone by. It felt like just last week I was tearing up every time the news broke with more stories about this terrible natural disaster.

Last year I teamed up with Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours in "Bloggers Day Of Silence." The point of this day was to grow awareness and build support for the people of Japan. Who in turn teamed up with ShleterBox, a company that provides disaster relief kits for people in need. In the first two weeks they raised $66,733 from 1,407 individuals, and had over 1,200 bloggers involved in the Bloggers Day of Silence. Overall, Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours raised $73,000, which equated to helping out approximately 730 people. What incredible numbers! 

So now it's a year later, and I wanted to take this day to remember Japan, with love.
