Modern Relief Japan

Over at Modern Relief Japan there is a chance to win one of 75 quilts that will have been kindly donated by a variety of wonderful crafty bloggers out there.  To enter all you need to do is put in an auction bid of $10.  That's only £6.37!! You'd be in with a chance of winning something beautiful but more importantly, you'll be helping a wonderful cause.

Here are some statistics that were posted over at Little Island Quilting:

29,000 - the number of people either dead or missing

23 - the years worth of debris that was dumped on just one area affected by the  tsunami 

3 - the number of years it will take to clear up the mess

500,000 - the number of households still without running water 

1,200 - the number of years since the last time an earthquake of this magnitude hit Japan

800 - the average number of kilometers per hour that a tsunami races across an ocean

800 - the average kilometers per hour cruising speed of an aircraft

 10 - the small amount in US dollars it'll cost you to enter the Modern Relief raffle to be in with a chance of winning any number of lovely quilts that have been donated. All monies raised are going to Mercy Corps, one of a number of charities currently directing help to Japan

6.37 - the amount in UK pounds to enter the Modern Relief raffle...
