Nie Nie Day


I only know of the Nielson's situation through other blogs; and if you've blogged around today, then you've probably noticed that today was Nie Nie day. It's neat how something like the blogging world- meaning where most people have never met each other in person- can come unite for one cause.
Last week Christian and Stephanie Nielson were in a very serious plane crash. They are a young couple with four children under the age of six. They are in critical condition. Stephanie has third degree burns covering 80% of her body and Christian has third degree burns over 30% of his body. The recovery will be very long and very expensive.
The full story and updates about Stephanie and Christian here: http://blog.cjanerun.com/

Today, several websites were auctioning off items for their benefit. Go here to see the comprehensive list: http://www.designmom.com/ .

I've heard of them! I found out through the blog I read almost everyday (the mother who lost her youngest daughter) She is having an auction too. I wonder if there's a way I can donate instead of participating the auctions??
