Helping out Nie

Yesterday an auction began for blogger Stephanie and her husband Christian, who were severely injured in a plane crash. The couple are the parents of four small children, and the recovery from their terrible burn injuries will be slow and difficult—and expensive. To help raise funds, Gabrielle, aka Design Mom, coordinated this auction. It's still going strong with over 300 items for sale, and if you want to take part, this post links to the many, many generous people who are pitching in. Donations, prayers, and well wishes are also needed, of course.

I don't know Stephanie, but she must be an amazing person to inspire this kind of effort on her and her family's behalf. It's stuff like this that makes me fall in love with the Internet all over again.

Just clicked over to see if you had updated. Supposed to be working, but instead spent about 45 minutes reading about the beautiful Nie Nie and her family via her blog and her sisters. My prayers are with them all for a speedy recovery for Stephanie and Christian.

i am so excited for this. i'm not holding an auction or anything, but i've read nie nie for a long time. i can't imagine how she will feel when she knows that all of this is going on.

it's so amazing.
Thank you so much for posting this! I was hoping we would get more internet royalty ;) on board! I am participating (come bid!) and there is some AMAZING stuff out there. It really does restore one's faith in internet humanity.

Thanks again!

From one of the auctioneers, thanks for the plug for the fundraising! You're right on both counts; NieNie is amazing, and so is the internet.

(I'm selling a special letterpress broadside with woodcut illustration if anyone here like that sort of art.)

Now I have ANOTHER reason to totally love you. (And yes, I DO mean that in the creepy stalker way.)
