ShelterBox is sending their awesome, super-compact, heavy duty disaster relief boxes to Japan (you can help them with a single $US1 donation). They pack 100 pounds of equipment in just 33 x 24 x 22 inches. Here’s what is inside:

• A custom-made shelter tent that fits up to 10 people, designed to withstand extreme temperatures and rain. It even has privacy partitions inside.
• Thermal blankets and insulated ground sheets.
• Water purification system that runs for six months.
• Industrial-grade mini stove that can use wood or any other fuel.
• Cooking utensils.
• Bowls, mugs and other containers.
• Toolbox with hammer, axe, saw, trenching shovel, hoe head, pliers and wire cutters.
• A children pack with drawing books, crayons and pens, to keep the kids distracted after losing all their toys.
• And of course, the heavy duty box can be used to store anything, from food to water.
