A Bear Hug for Japan
I'm a quarter Japanese. Did you know that? The effects of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan are near and dear to my heart. I have an interest in this tragedy, like I've never felt before with something else like this. Maybe it's because I'm more informed this time or maybe it's because I have relatives there. I don't know them and I don't talk to them, but I'm related to them and they're there.
My grandpa (my mom's dad) was in the Army and stationed in Japan when he met my grandma. They lived all around the world before settling right here.
There is so much to do and so much that needs to be done and so many ways to help. I love this bear from Sleepy King. All proceeds go to the American Red Cross for Earthquake and Tsunami Relief and it's just one simple, pretty little way to help a nation ravaged by disaster.
