open your hearts to NieNie...

The blog world is abuzz today with a fundraiser for Stephanie and Christian Neilson. They were hurt badly in a small-plane accident almost 2 weeks ago- the pilot of the plane is dead, and the two of them are burned and injured. They are the cutest family- featured in Cookie last September, and have four children under the age of 6. Even if they have great insurance, it is more then likely that it will not begin to cover the additional expenses they will have- with two parents not working and four children to take care of.

Having been in a bad accident myself just a couple of years ago, I can attest to the positive effect the kindness of strangers can have on you while recovering. I hope you will join me in either bidding on something in the auctions benefitting them, donating directly to their PayPal fund, or sending them a card at the hospital.
