Happy Nie Nie Day

Wow, I am so touched by all the generous contributions and bids. Really. Now that most of the auctions are up–please help spread the word. Post it on your blog, email everyone in your facebook account, call your mom. The majority of people in this world don’t read blogs {I know, I know, its hard to believe.} So take a second and send an email to 10 people telling them about Christian and Stephanie and all the auctions going on. I’ll make it easy for you. Copy and paste the following:

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.

If you are able, please consider contributing to this fund that will go directly to the family.

Today, several websites are auctioning off items for their benefit. Go here to see the comprehensive list: .

I am so excited about all of the auctions.

    I’d love to spread the word. One question: the link to donate through pay pal keeps saying page not found – am I doing something wrong?

    Hey Diana,

    I changed the link to the Recovery Site. You can link to paypal through the “donate” button.

    That Jeff Hein painting is lovely. The model for that is a close friend of ours, so I had to post that up on our blog and hopefully drive traffic to the auction!

    Thanks Jordan! I’ve sent that email out to people. You’ve made it so easy. I haven’t had time to do more than share blogs, and you’re right, not everyone reads them.

    Jordan, this story brought tears to my eyes. I have copied and posted your blurb to my blog, and am happy to do whatever I can to help. I am amazed by all the love that this niche of the blogging community is showing to Stephanie and her family… very touching.

    thank you for making it easy for me. i’ve been wanting to spread the word and you posting that took away all of my excuses (which primarily centered around chasing a 2 year old)
