I have been moved by all the heartfelt concern that the blogger world has shown for Japan in its time of need.

Liza shared this photo by Abby. A donation of $8 from the sale of each print on her Etsy shop will go to the Red Cross.
Many blogs gave links to charitable organizations but English Muse seemed to give the best suggestion. Philanthropy.com has an updated list of relief efforts on the ground in Japan now, & gives links for making donations.
I was especially moved by personal accounts like the one by Marjory, at Chemin Des Muguets, whose son telephoned from Tokyo to let his parents know that he was all right.
But by far the most touching post I saw was from The Magnificent Life of Plants via Sophie Munns. Here are the strong voices of Japanese survivors, tweeting impressions that are both uplifting & hopeful.
If you only click one of these links let it be this one. Read the post & then go to Philanthropy.com & make a donation. You will want to.
