I few people have asked if help is still needed in Japan. I do not know. However, for some inspiration, this is what I sent a few weeks ago. As I read the news; life is still quite a challenge. I am sure many things are still needed. I just do not know what they are. Please check the news and see where you might have an opportunity to share. It feels so good. A little from many makes a lot for some.
Toiletries for Japan
These are the boxes I sent almost 7 weeks ago. I get the impression that many things are still needed. My Quaker Meeting , Durham Friends Meeting, donated most of the filling stuff including mostly bar soap, tooth brushes, tooth paste, shampoo, etc. After I carefully repacked and stuffed the boxes, I had some room. I used wash clothes for stuffing and added a baby quilt and small toy to all the necessities. It was such FUN!
One thing to remember when packing, everything needs to be enclosed in a plastic bag. This takes a bit of time, but it ensures the package will not leak all over.
