Japan: We all have wondered how we can help. Donations of money to the Red Cross and the Japan Society are needed, welcome and worthy. I had an idea to try something else...something we've done before and could do again....and as I was googling to find out how to write *socks* in Japanese I came upon a man who is located in Japan and has already been collecting and distributing socks from his office. HCIT?
Please visit his site as he articulates the need for both socks and shared sentiments of support. Socks For Japan (link).
Let's join Jason and his helpers!
On the SocksForJapan site you will see they will assist you in writing your thoughts in Japanese. See HERE. To make it easy I've taken some of the messages they prepared and made these printable graphics for you to use, with room at the bottom for your signature. Each tag is a separate image. (right click and save or print).
Thank you for agreeing to be with me, even when you didn't know what it was! If you plan on joining in by contributing to my box just let me know and I will save you a spot. If you would rather make a $ donation toward shipping you can send a check or use paypal. Every little bit will help. A large flat rate priority box to Japan is $55. Any excess I receive will go to Jason to help him at his end.
If you decide to begin your own collection let me know and I will start up a reference page announcing locations so we can spread the word. This is Jason Kelly's initiative and I appreciate that he is able to make this happen at his end. It is something I believe in and simply want to support the project, and obviously, the people in Japan. Warm feet and warm hearts. Love that, don't you? Let's send the message that They Matter. Thank you.
