Nie Nie Day has been so fun to read about on everyone's blogs today. If you haven't been over to Design Mom, go over and read through the list. It's overwhelming to see how many people have pitched in to help.
I bought this necklace. I'm excited about it. I keep getting outbid on some of the things I have my eye on, but I'm going to keep bidding for as long as I can afford it!
My sister Molly is helping out as well. Here's a quote from her blog entry:
In the blogosphere around the world, today has been declared Nie Nie day. Bloggers everywhere are coming together to support Nie Nie and her family after she and her husband were in a plane crash a few weeks ago. There are auctions going on all over the internet with proceeds going to support Nie Nie and her family's recovery. They are both still in intensive care at a hospital in Arizona. I don't know Nie Nie or her family, but I've started reading her blog since this tragedy happened and I've been touched by her story. Nie Nie's sister Jane makes me cry every time I read her blog.
I know all too well how hard it is to be bombarded with unexpected medical issues and expenses. Sometimes there is no way to recover without the help of others. So I've decided to help them and "pay it forward" for all the help we've received. As some of you know, I have a website, www.clipsbymolly.com, and I sell binki clips for babies. I've decided to have a binki clip sale with ALL the proceeds going to Nie Nie and her family. Today through Saturday, all clips are $5 with free shipping and handling.
