The tragic natural disasters that have recently hit Japan have been difficult for many of us to witness, even if only through photographs and news stories. Feeling helpless to aid those afflicted from all the way over here on the other side of the world is frustrating, and I know that many of us don’t have the resources to make large contributions to the emergency relief efforts.
But the truth is that every donation counts– no matter how small.
I know this is a variation from my normal posts, but this is a cause that I feel very strongly about. I know that many people have been looking for a way to help, and this cause is one that I trust and that I can confidently refer to others who are looking for ways to show their support for the country of Japan.
Petya I. Edwards Foundation, a client of Grammar Chic, Inc., has temporarily rerouted all of the contributions they receive to those in need in Japan. Petya I. Edwards Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Dallas, Texas that provides aid to families and children who are going through tough economic times due to an illness in the family, the death of a loved one, or other extenuating circumstances. By providing a stepping stone from which these families can regain their financial independence, Petya I. Edwards Foundation teaches individuals how to regain their self-sufficiency and rebuild their financial lives. Now, the Foundation is sending all of the contributions that it receives to help provide comfort, hope, and desperately needed resources to the people of Japan.
Money, non-perishable food, bottled water, blankets, clothing, and any other non-perishable resources are all being accepted and sent to help those in need.
The widget on the sidebar will take anyone interested in learning more or helping out to Petya I. Edwards Foundation’s website. For more information, you can also visit the Facebook cause mentioned in the widget to spread the word and show your support.
Thank you to anyone who helps out in any way– your support is greatly appreciated, I’m sure, by everyone who benefits from your contributions!
