About
Herbs & Healing Supplies For Japan
Description
American and Japanese Herbalists collaborate to get herbs and healing supplies to Japan.

Mission
Delivering supplies and volunteering in Miyagi Prefecture, Yumi replied to a private message from Heather: “it’s a hell” Yumi said. “a lot of children and animals tired, stressed and PTSD” (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Apparently many children had watched as people and animals drown, and have been regularly exposed to seeing corpses. “ 3 to 5 year old children the PTSD is the worst”. It is an unsanitary environment and many deaths are from hunger as well. Yumi is also concerned for the pregnant and nursing mothers whose bodies are being effected by the stress, shock and soon by radiation from the crippled nuclear power plants. “I was wishing to use herbs and essential oils, but too many in need”

Products
New, unopened supplements, high anti-oxidant natural snack foods, essential oils and essential oil towelettes/wipes can be sent directly to Yumi for distribution.

Miyagi Prefecture is a COLD area where it snows so please imagine what you would need if you were in their situation and consider what you can donate.

If you are willing to help by sending healing relief supplies for these victims please read the all of the mailing information.

To make it easier to donate, Poppy Swap is organizing an “herb drive” and will pay all international shipping costs on any supplies that are delivered directly to our office. We will also contribute herbal donations in equal value of 100% of the total purchases made through Poppy Swap for the entire month of April. If you would like to get involved and find it easier to simply donate money, we have added a paypal donation button to this page. 100% of any donated funds will be used for the purchasing and shipping of supplies to Japan.

So if you have herbs, send ‘em.
If you want herbs, buy ‘em.
If you got cash share it.
Let’s do right!
