Can you help?




One of our wonderful creative bloggers and her husband were in a horrible plane accident. Stephanie is burned on 80% of her body........her husband Christian has also been terribly burned. They have 4 small children. The story is so tragic. They need help.
I cannot sit back and not use the opportunity of this blog that is so full of crafty people. I am thinking about organizing an auction.......what do you think? We have so many people who read this blog that are the most talented bunch of people. We could come up with some great stuff.
What do you think? What can you make to donate? Let me know.
Email me if you have something you would like to auction off. We'll figure this out.

This is a wonderful idea. I am not sure at the moment what I can do to help, but I will come up with something. Thank you for putting this idea out there, I pray it draws all kinds of people in and helps this precious family!

I would love to donate one of my pieces. You can view various examples at my etsy shops, or I would be willing to make one just for the auction. I am also an author for Northlight, and would donate a signed copy of my new book, Tiles Gone Wild, due out Sept.23rd.
Please let me know how I can help!

Pam Hawk said...

Yes! I want to help, too. (She has a lovely blog, by the way.) I can donate several of my new Pass It On Plate Lite kits to the auction. How about eight? (They're being listed at Etsy as fast as I can go, and not all up yet.)

I would also be happy to blog about it and post some ads on Project Wonderful and Entrecard to spread the word about the auction.

I'll keep my eye on your blog for updates... Thanks for the opportunity to help!

For any of the other Nie Nie auctions that are still 'LIVE', Laundry Tree is offering 2 free samples of Laundry Tree Soap Nuts (a replacement for traditional laundry detergent that contains no chemicals). You simply need to forward them a copy of your auction receipt for $20 or more. There are more details on my blog if you'd like them!

Inkspot Workshop said...

I would love to help. Perhaps you could do an auction on your site? If that's the case I would like to donate a couple sets of my cards. You are very thoughtful and kind to do this. It's wonderful to see how the blogging community has come together to support this family during their time of need.

I keep making it to other auctions for her just after they've closed so I'd be thrilled to help with this one. I'd donate some jewelry to auction.

I'm just getting started with knitting projects to "show and tell" and haven't even uploaded the photos yet to Etsy or my blog - but I would be most grateful to donate a keyhole scarf and matching fingerless gloves that I recently knitted. Let me know how I can help. They are all in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for letting all of us know - I'll pass the word around and put something on my blog too.
