Japan Earthquake and Medecins Sans Frontieres

I have been watching with horror as the events in Japan have unfolded. As I sit in my comfortable home with my kids safe and provided for, I cannot but feel that every person who is in the same position, may want to help in some way. Knitters and crocheters are collectively a huge force to be reckoned with (Ravelry has over a million members!), and if each of us does something small (or even big :) ) , we can make a difference. I have made a donation to Medecins Sans Frontieres, who already have people in Japan, helping. I would like to ask every person reading this, to make a donation as well, however small. If I were in Japan, with a family and all the fears that the Japanese people must be facing, I would be relieved to know that someone unknown is doing whatever they can to help me. We may not be able to up, and leave to help there, but we can do something by sponsoring those who can.

Please...donate something :)
