we are all enlisted......

Fundraising Auctions will begin tomorrow. There are some amazing items being donated- and I'm not just saying that......there are really, really good items. Spread the word & come back tomorrow for a little feel-good shopping!

It's about time for me to hold a giveaway again.....however I think the idea of a "giveaway" is changing this week.......

In the very-extended blogging circles that I peruse, I have been following the recent story of "NieNie." From the blogosphere..........
Stephanie Nielson was in a plane crash with her husband, Christian Nielson, and his flight instructor, Doug Kinnear, near St. Johns, Arizona. Doug Kinnear passed away soon after arriving at the Maricopa County Hospital.

Christian & Stephanie remain in critical condition at Maricopa Burn Center. Christian has sustained burns on over 30% of his body. His wife Stephanie’s body was burned over 80%.

You can get more information here and here. Have your tissue box ready. The medical costs for their recovery will likely reach millions in the upcoming months of pain and healing.
The events are tragic,yes. But, the outpouring of love from complete strangers is turning tragedy into a story of love and sympathy. The example of selflessness from the Nielson family and fellow bloggers is nothing short of amazing.
Many bloggers out there are holding "silent auctions" on their blogs.
100% of proceeds will go to the recovery fund for this sweet family. I am hoping that all of you will join with me in this cause. If you have ANYTHING to go towards an auction to be held here on the Ponytail Challenge, please contact me ASAP. It can be homemade, store bought, etc. The auctions will be held all of next week.
Please spread the word of this story and the fundraising across the blog lines. This family needs any and all help that we can give- whether it be your spare change or a heartfelt prayer.
