The enormity of the situation in Japan is hard to fathom. The loss of life unimaginable. Yet, it is all so very, cruelly real. As the situation continues to unfold I am simply dumbfounded by the staggering level of destruction and the sheer power nature can yield with no consideration for young or old, weak or strong. Just brute force and the potential for a more. My heart goes out to the brave, honorable people of Japan and I pray that they can soon begin to see a light at the end of this tunnel, literally a way out of the rubble.

In the meantime, we can all help. There are numerous agencies reaching out a hand to aid with relief efforts. You can find a comprehensive list here. Or, if you are so inclined, you can purchase the t-shirt above. The "Army for Japan" t-shirt can be purchased for $20 here and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these shirts will go toward the Salvation Army's relief efforts in Japan. I'm ordering mine now.

I just can't even wrap my head around the whole thing- unimaginable. Thanks for posting ways to help- I bought one of those shirts for each of my family members yesterday and feel like if we all do just a little something, hopefully a little relief can come to Japan. The whole situation is truly heartbreaking.

The Japanese situation is truly apocalyptic...our world implodes.
These shirts are a fantastically stylish form of outreach in light of the enormous chasm that is this disaster.
I could see all your boys in one...meanwhile, I must order one too.
Thanks for caring,
