Support the Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami Relief

Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that my Etsy shop, Exchanging Fire is raising money to help the Japanese recover from the earthquake and tsunami that struck March 11, 2011. To participate and support this cause, just type “JAPAN” in the Notes to Seller area during checkout and I’ll donate $3.11 cents of your order toward GlobalGiving, an organization dedicated to making sure nearly 100% of the money donated goes toward the relief effort. Not interested in buying more stitch markers? Donate directly by visiting globalgiving.org or text “JAPAN” to 50555 to give $10.

Facts to Remember:
– This is the strongest earthquake Japan has ever experienced.
– This is the 5th worst earthquake in recorded history.
– There hasn’t been a megaquake in this region of Japan for over 1,100 years.
– The earthquake was so strong it sped up the earth’s rotation by 1.6 microseconds.
