We all have heard about and seen the devastation that has taken place in Japan over the last several weeks. All of our hearts ache for those who have seemingly lost everything and everyone near and dear to them in the earthquake and tsunami and now...with all of the nuclear disaster fears, the devastation continues. And sadly, for those lives that were spared and have been found in the wreckage - they now face years of rebuilding, regrouping and reliving. The images replaying on our local news channels is probably nothing in comparison to what it actually looks like over in Japan.
There are many ways that each of us can get involved to help. We know that it's impossible for everyone to be able to pack up, head to Japan and physically help with the aid relief going on there, but there are so many ways to donate to those who ARE there, who are helping in the disaster relief and we want to be sure we do our part to help in any way we can. Look around your neighborhood, call local agencies and charities or even contact the Red Cross to see what you can do to help...they need help.
Starting today - Tuesday, March 22 through Sunday, March 27 - The Twinery will be donating 25% of all shop sales to The American Red Cross for their efforts in the disaster relief and aid they are providing in Japan. It's just our little way of helping those who have been torn by this horrific disaster. The American Red Cross is providing shelter, food and emotional support to the victims of the disaster - so please help!
Visit our shop during this time...and remember that anything you purchase is aiding those lives in Japan as well!
