japan on our minds, in our hearts

TOTA Press has put together two "thousand cranes" special edition card designs. All proceeds benefit the American Red Cross to support disaster relief efforts to help those affected by the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific. To quote Tota Press: "Senbazuru - or one thousand cranes - is a tradition of folding 1,000 origami cranes to grant a wish, such as wishing for a speedy and solid recovery." I can't think of a better sentiment...

I also encourage you to take part in the For Japan with Love disaster relief effort organized by Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours - tomorrow will be a day of silence in the blog community in an effort to respect and acknowledge the current devastation in Japan. You can also get involved by donating to Shelter Box. Every penny makes a difference.

Sending much hope and love to my friends in Japan, Ruriko and Tadayoshi & Maggie and Andy...
