Less than 24 hours after the disaster, the Merapi volcano, miles away in Central Java erupted.

You may have watched or read about these in the news and saw with your very own eyes how nature really took course and how it was able to turn our lives with the palms of its hands. Some of you have even written and left me messages, asking about my safety and well being. For that, I can’t thank you enough. It warms my heart to think that there are friends, thousands of miles away who are concerned about me, thinking of me, even though we have never met. It makes me more certain that we can reach out to one another no matter the distance.
So I am now asking you, my friends, for your hand. To spare a little of your love and reach out to these people in need of our help.
I will be posting a series of drawings throughout this month, which will be available for purchase as a donation for the victims of these disasters. All donations will be forwarded to the Indonesian Red Cross through their public donations account at the end of November by the latest, when I will also be posting the financial details of these donations here on my blog.

I am not noble, nor rich. Neither am I trying to justify my personal self with this. But I am just a human being with a beating heart, and if the deaths and sufferings of other human beings do not touch my heart, then what will? I’m sure you feel exactly the way I do.
Thank you for reading this. Please help me spread the words and ask your family and friends to join you here for a little helping hand. If any of you out there have the same idea and plan on or already have something going on, please contact me so we could link to each other.
With all my heart,
If you remembered, I started a Blog Anniversary giveaway a week ago and was supposed to announce the winner yesterday. However, given the grieving atmosphere surrounding us here, I’ve decided to e-mail the winner personally about it. My apologies. I hope you understand.
