Here I am babbling about rice candy, and there is a family in real need.
Stephanie and Christian Nielson were in a plane crash a few weeks ago and they remain in critical condition at Maricopa Burn Center in Arizona. Christian has sustained burns on over 30% of his body. Stephanie’s body was burned over 80%. They have 4 small children yearning for their mom and dad. Family and friends have started a donation fund to aid in their medical bills (which they estimate will be in the millions) as well as the household expenses while they recover. Read more about them here.
I'm a bit late in joining in the effort, but better late than never I say.
For the next 2 weeks 9/8/08 - 9/22/08 the proceeds of all my print sales will be donated to the nienie fund. That means the full purchase price of each print (excluding shipping) will be given to the Neilson family. A special gift will also be given with each print purchases. If you are not wanting a mytinystar print at this time, there are many other items being sold for this cause at design mom check for listings marked live. Or you can make your donations directly through the link on my left sidebar.
It's not much, but every little bit helps!
One of my favorite posts from Stephanie's blog can be found here.
It really puts things into perspective, what great people!
