Like the rest of the world, I am watching the unfolding events in Japan with shock, fear and hope.
I am hoping that things will not get any worse, for a people who have been battered in every way possible already. I am hoping that food, water and shelter can effectively be distributed to the people who are most in need, as the snow joins the challenges that natural and man made disasters have created.
I know quilters of the world will eventually send quilts to metaphorically and physically wrap survivors in love. At this stage donations of money, to the organisations that have experience in disaster relief, seem like the best place to start. We made a donation yesterday to the Red Cross. I urge you to think about doing the same.
