Blog Hop for Japan Giveaway (Stand for Japan)

On March 11, 2011 magnitude-8.9 earthquake hit off the shore of Japan, unleashing a 23-foot (seven-meter) tsunami and leaving enormous destruction in its wake.

Thousands have been killed in this disaster and thousands more have been left homeless, as the tsunami swept through, causing mass destruction and setting off widespread fires that burned out of control. It has caused major disruptions to nuclear power plants, contributing to radiation leaks that have bled into the air and water, polluting the environment for any life forms - not just human - that call Japan home. People are living without fresh, running water, shelter, food, clothing, all of these basic necessities you and I may take for granted.
The Bawdy Book Blog and My Shelf Confessions have created this fundraising page to aid in the enormous relief efforts required to help Japan recover and rebuild. Let's help make a difference in so many lives. All donations are going to ShelterBox USA, a non-profit organization that provides shelter, food, and other living materials to those in need across the globe. For more information about Shelterbox USA, or if you simply would like to know where your donation is going, please click here: We chose ShelterBox USA because they make it easy to donate, we can track the boxes we helped to "buy" and they were on the ground in Japan within 24 hours of the disaster.Each box costs $1,000 to sponsor; we're going for two! Click here to see (and interact with) what's inside the box!
Rest assured that your donations will go exactly where they say they are going; they don't pass through me at all. FirstGiving is a charity partner organization that assists non-profits and individuals in fundraising for specific events. For more information on FirstGiving, click here:

Now, you don't HAVE to donate to enter the giveaway, but it sure would be great if you did. Giveaways are fantastic and who doesn't love to win free stuff? But there are hundreds of thousands of people halfway around the world right now who've lost loved ones, homes and pretty much everything they've built in their life, for no reason other than where they live. My husband is in the military and is in Japan now helping out with the relief so this means hop means a lot to me.

Help me make a difference, because every little bit counts.
