Help Your Own Child, Help the Children of Japan

This post is in support of my friend Lisa, of In Pencil, and her husband Ben. She did all the work, and it's a great cause. Can't beat that!

From March 24th through April 4th Ben Boswell, MD will be donating 50% of the proceeds from his new parenting e-book, Too Much Love, Too Much Discipline, to Save the Children in order to help the children displaced by the recent earthquake in Japan.

In a March 13, 2011 press release, Save the Children stated the following:

“We are concerned for as many as 100,000 children who may have been displaced because of last Friday’s earthquake and tsunami. Many of them will have lost their homes and been forced to take refuge in unfamiliar places like evacuation centers that might cause them to be afraid and anxious,” said Stephen McDonald, who is leading Save the Children’s relief efforts in Japan.

“There is also a risk that some of them will have become separated from their parents and family members because of the disaster. It is important we provide support to parents and children who are struggling to cope in the aftermath of the disaster,” said McDonald.

"Save the Children has a team in Sendai, one of the worst-affected areas, establishing an operations base to help the most vulnerable children and their families.”

Help your own child and the children of Japan at the same time by purchasing a copy:
Too Much Love, Too Much Discipline: The Perfect Mix for Changing Your Defiant Child’s Behavior and Restoring Peace and Harmony to Your Life and Family

I can't imagine how hard it must be for the children who have gone through such a traumatic experience. What an awesome way to help those children and their families.

Thank you to Ben and Lisa, and to you Matt, for the link.

A really great cause Matt! My heart goes out to all the children who've been uprooted by the natural disaster in Japan and especially to everyone who lost loved ones. It's good to know there are people there trying to make a difference.
