Wow–what a day! Thank you to all of you who came out today. We were completely SOLD OUT by around 3pm (and to think that we were concerned about having too many leftovers…)! We are still adding up the donations, but we’ll post it here as soon as possible.
If you would still like to donate on behalf of the bake sale, please send your checks directly to JEARS and Direct Relief International. We would be happy to include your amount in our bake sale total if you let us know that you donated (to do so, please email Christina at firstname.lastname@example.org). The mailing addresses for donations to JEARS and Direct Relief are as follows:
PO Box 125
Alto, MI 49302
Direct Relief International
27 S. La Patera Lane
Santa Barbara, CA 93117
Lastly, our guest blogger Arwen Niles was kind enough to point out the following upcoming events that are benefitting Japan:
Tonight, Kent for Japan and Kent State International Mentors are hosting a night out in downtown Kent at the Stone Tavern.
There’s also a super-cool event called Jammies for Japan that will take place on Friday, April 8th that I hope as many schools as possible will join. The money for that will go to ShelterBox to help move some of the displaced people (and their pets!) out of the temporary shelters.
And there is a Japan Relief Fund set up through First Merit Bank for direct deposit. That money will go to JEARS and Second Harvest Japan, and depending on how the situation evolves, possibly Hope International Japan.
