Right now in Java there is still an enormous lack of awareness about the tragic earthquake that struck the region more than two weeks ago, leaving 600,000 people without homes or any supplies. While most of us have the luxury of choosing which restaurant to eat at, and which gadgets to buy, thousands of people are suffering in a remote region of central Indonesia in the shadow of Mt. Merapi, one of the worlds most active and therefore dangerous volcanoes. While many of us cannot leave our daily routine to help families and children rebuild their lives.

Please take a moment to read their journals from Sri Lanka or the current situation in Java. If each of you donated half of what they would spend on a new pair of sneakers each week it would be an enormous help to the less fortunate.

You can donate via paypal, please send money to java at fortunateblessings.org, to the address listed on their website.
