In an amazing example of how the world is really small, I found out about a plane crash that severely burned Stephanie and Christian Nielson. You can read more about them at these blogs:
cjanerun.com - this is from Stephanie's sisterhttp://www.nieniedialogues.blogspot.com/
-this is Stephanie's blog, which includes updates, but also shows what a beautiful family they are
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Send cards to decorate our patient's room!
(2 separate rooms)
Maricopa County Hospital
c/o Stephanie and Christian Nielson
2601 East Roosevelt Street
Phoenix, AZ 85008
(No flowers please!)
(Though Nie would love them . . .)
I know you Craftsters make some AMAZING cards and the rooms of these two would be filled with color from your work.
And, if you feel so inclined, they have set up accounts to donate money and also several etsy shop owners have been doing fundraisers. More info on that can be found at cjanerun.com. I am not the main contact, so I feel better directing you there.
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
And in closing, if you only check out one blog, check out one the last Stephanie (NieNie) was able to post. It's about their back-to-school dinner they do. Just look at the wonderful detail and love that went into this: http://nieniedialogues.blogspot.com/2008/08/bell-is-ringing-again.html
