I'm running a little late in comparison to the hundreds of auctions that are being held online for Nie Nie Day, but I want to participate. The efforts that are being made to support this family via the web are so overwhelming. Have you seen the auction list on designmom.com? The magnitude of the plane crash and their condition in the hospital didn't hit me until today after I sat down to read Stephanie's blog and watch 2 of the news reports from nierecovery.com. At first I thought there wasn't anything I could do, but just as hundreds of others, I was moved by their story and want to help. I'm nervous to see if I even get a response from my blog readers, but I hope to at least get a few. I don't care if I only get 2 bidders, at least we will help the Nielson family in some small way. I'd like to auction off one portrait session valued at $200 (engagements, bridals, family, babies, etc.), taken in Utah County, where you keep the images and nie nie gets the money. Feel free to enter for yourself, or for friends and family in the Utah area that could use a portrait session.
In $1 increments starting at $25, please leave a comment on this post to place your bid before midnight on Tuesday, September 2.
