Edit: Living Social is matching each $5 donation to the Red Cross with another $5, meaning that you can pay $5 for a $10 donation. The Hubby and I just took advantage of this. Will you?: http://livingsocial.com/deals/32115-5-for-10-donation-to-red-cross-relief-efforts
Admittedly, I had avoided watching the news about the disaster in Japan. The images of anguish and devastation were just too much for my weak heart. As much as we would like to ignore the events of the world around us that do not affect us directly, we must make more of an effort to be aware of what is going on so that we can aid those less fortunate in any way possible.
Tomorrow, I will be participating in a bloggers day of silence to raise awareness and acknowledge the devastation going on in Japan. This means that there will be no posts tomorrow.
You can find more information on this day of silence along with ways to donate to relief efforts through the site Utterly Engaged.
