Freebie and Japan Charity Kit



Hi Everyone!  I'm sure by now you are all aware of the horrific devastation and situation going
on right now in Japan.

I was out of town helping to teach a digital class at a scrapbooking retreat during that time so I didn't get a chance to see alot of the first hand footage. Even though I love digital scrapbooking I couldn't help but feel saddened by the fact that I got to spend a weekend on a hobby while soo many others lost everything they owned.

  After I returned I scoured the internet to read everything I could about it and was just amazed by the stories being told. I read a story about a man who managed to find 1 soggy photograph of himself on a fishing trip and stuffed it in a plastic bag, his ONE photograph.

I read about how even in the midst of such total chaos soo many reporters had mentioned the grace and hospitality of the people who would offer the reporters some of the very little food they had, or their patient behavior in makeshift shelters, no one shouting, no one fighting, just patience.  What a lesson in grace.  I was soo happy to see that Toiny had suggested a charity collab for Japan and even though in the overall scheme of things our contribution may be small compared to the need, if we all do a little, we can help.  Please spread the word, please help where you can.

Here's a little about the organization we are donating through:
SAMARITANS PURSE JAPAN RELIEF EFFORTS

and a few videos of the devastation and relief efforts they are helping with:






Here's the freebie today, a clustered frame created from my portion of the Charity collab:
