Together for Japan (UPDATE!)

Last week, I committed to donating 25% of my sales from Friday, March 18 through Sunday, March 20th to Red Cross to help Japan. The Boy agreed to match my donation by 100%. The company The Boy works for, Thomson Reuters, matches 100% of donations by their employees, too! 

As a result, we raised $534 on my end, and with The Boy's match, we totaled $1,068 from our account.

Holy moly, that's a lot of money to exit our bank account in one lump. But it is a tiny fraction of how much Japan has lost, so we are happy to give it.

With Thomson Reuters Foundation match, we were able to raise $2,136 to Red Cross to help Japan!
