Cards For A Cause

Nie Nie Day

You may have seen the story on the news, or maybe even heard through this little thing we know as the blogging world. On Aug. 16, 2008 Christian and Stephanie (Nie) Nielson & Doug Kinneard, the flight instructor were in a plane crash in Arizona. Doug passed away after arriving at the hospital but Stephanie and her husband are in critical condition in the burn center in Phoenix Arizona. They both have substantial burns covering most of their body. They have months of surgeries and the medical bills are expected to be in the millions. To read more about their tragic story, click here.

They currently live in Mesa, AZ & have 4 beautiful children.
I personally don't know Stephanie or her family. I frequent her blog, and it is through this that I know her. She has the cutest family that she truely loves and a husband that she adores. Reading through her blog, you will get a sense of her humor, her creativity, and her love for life.

My heart goes out to the Nielson's and their family. In an effort to help ease the burden I am joining over 300 bloggers who are participating in auctions on their blogs to help the Nielson family out. Click here to see a full list of blogs participating in auctions. I have decided to join in and auction off cards. All of the proceeds will be going to help the Nielson family. Please pass the word along, and feel free to leave a link to my auction on your blog.



To place a bid: leave a comment on this post along with a valid email address, and your bid amount (please only bid in whole dollar amounts). Your bid amount must be higher than the previous bid.

Auction ends: Saturday, September 5 at midnight. The last comment of the night will be the winning bid.

Winning bidder will be notified by email. The winner will pay the amount of their winning bid to the Stephanie and Christian PayPal account. Once I receive a copy of your payment I will ship your cards to you free of charge.

This is a great cause, and I hope that you will be generous as this family is in need of your help. Thank you!
