As soon as the quake in Japan happened, I knew what I had to do- write a post that would share age appropriate ways to talk to kids about the current events happening on the other side of the globe and provide resources about how to help children understand something that still seems so unreal, even to us as adults. Read my post called Teaching Kids About Earthquakes, Tsunamis, and Japan Through Online Resources.
Today I’m joining the women who are part of Social Media Moms and using today’s post to make a difference. While we’d love for you to donate to Save the Children by clicking on the button at the top of this post and on my blog’s sidebar, I realize that this isn’t always possible for all families and wanted to offer an alternative way that you and your children can send hope to the children in Japan without spending any money.
Cranes for Kids is a simple, yet visually appealing site, that makes it easy to create a crane in just a couple of minutes. It’s the brainchild Jim Robinson and Kurt Dommermuth, the dad duo behind the popular baby-preschooler site Kneebouncers.
Special thanks to Heather from Cool Progeny who shared Cranes For Kids with me and has the inside scoop on how quickly Kneebouncers came up with the idea to send 1000 virtual cranes to kids in Japan from children around the world.
Please pass this great site along with others you know by tweeting:
@TechSavvyMama encourages you to use www.CranesforKids.com to send a free virtual message of hope to Japan’s kids thanks to @Kneebouncers
No compensation was received for this post. Just participating along with the rest of the Social Media Moms to help the children of Japan.
