Are you in Seattle? Please consider donating stockpile items to Operation Airlift Japan!

If you are in the Seattle area, and are wondering what to do with your ever-growing stockpile, here's a organization that would welcome your donations!

We have adopted 436 Children in Japan This is your Moment to be a World Citizen!
436 kids without parents between the ages of 4-17 in Japan need your help. The Naval Air Facility Misawain Japan have been working with Bikou-en orphanage for twenty years, and two former Everett residents are staying in Japan to help even though they could leave if they wanted to.
After the twin disasters of a 9.0 quake and Tsunami, the orphanage has had to turn away kids. They need the most basic of supplies, clothing and food at this point. WE HAVE TO ACT QUICKLY. THE KIDS ARE FOUR DAYS AWAY FROM RUNNING OUT OF FOOD. SUPPLIES HAVE BEEN SLOW TO GET TO JAPAN DUE TO SNOW AND DEVASTATION.
What is needed:
