I’m still here; I’m trying to survive the hectic pace of urban living. I thought that I’d start posting about how the Florian Hat Pattern disaster relief aid has been doing, so here goes…a total of 6 people have purchased Florian, but as I said in my previous post– every little thing counts. In fact, I am amending the previous and forthcoming donations from 50% of the proceeds TO 100%. A million thanks to those who participated and who will participate in this charity. There are only 9 more days remaining until the last day of the Florian Hat Pattern in Helping Japan. I will, however, keep the link to the American Red Cross in the side bar available for those who are still interested in helping.
Since that fateful day of March 11, 2011, as many as 25,000 people were killed and more than 150,000 are left homeless, as reported by CBS News. While most of these ones are expected to move back into their homes, 47,000 displaced by the Chernobyl-level nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant. The photo below

Various produce, dairy products and seafood (from other than coastal Fukushima) have tested either not detected or were below the regulation radiation values set by the Japanese authorities. One good news is that there has been decreasing levels of radioactivity since April 5 found in seawater as reported by the International Atomic Energy Agency. All in all in light of these reports, Japan will continue to need aid from the helping hands and giving hearts.
