with love update

When Henny and Lucy of utterly engaged and Lydia from ever ours first conceived of a fundraiser for shelterbox to aid those in need affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and a blogger day of silence to raise awareness of the situation, they had no idea how successful their efforts would be. On her blog, Lydia wrote "what started off as "i hope we get 50 bloggers involved" and "i hope we do raise $5,500" turned into something far beyond what i had ever imagined." Over 1200 bloggers from around the world joined in the blogger day of silence. And, as of 11:30 pm on March 20, $53,940 had been raised, with 11 more days yet to go to raise even more.

Blessings to Lydia and utterly engaged for thinking of and organizing the fundraiser. And may the money raised and the energy of love fly to Japan on the wings of angels.
