Japan Disaster Fundraiser!

100 comments

Thanks to your help this morning, I was able to create a fundraising page through Canada helps. I knew you guys would pull through for me. :)

I’m really excited to announce that I’m holding a fundraiser to raise money for the Canadian Red Cross Japan Disaster relief. I have been thinking about how I could help out and I decided to do this because there is strength in numbers!

My goal is to raise at least $1,000. Fundraiser closes Wednesday March 16th at 10pm EST.  It is a lot to raise in just over 1 day, but I KNOW that we can make this happen!

Please click here to be taken to the donation page.

Hi! I just donated $10 but where it said do I want to provide my name and info I said no, because I have previously been added to mailing lists for other charities and I wanted to avoid that. I neglected to consider it might not tell you who I am (which I don’t mind), for the drawing. If it doesn’t, let me know! My confimration number was C1216585.

You are such a wonderful woman! I have friends and a professor over there. Thankfully, they are all alright, but I am horrified at the images I am seeing. I am only thankful that the Japanese government is accepting foreign aid this time.

If everyone gave $10 it would make such a big difference…. strength in numbers is right!

Hi Angela,

I am a frequent visitor of your blog (I love your recipes!) and I just wanted to comment on how great this Japan Relief Glo Bar raffle.

As a Japanese citizen living in the US, it has been very difficult and heartbreaking watching the events unfold from afar.
I truly appreciate how people all around the world have been contributing to the effort.

A big thank you to Angela and to everyone making donations.

Emilie
