extending a helping hand

Gabrielle Blair, who writes the fabulously fun and outrageously popular blog Design Mom, is hosting an ENORMOUS silent auction tomorrow to benefit Stephanie and Christian Nielson, who were severely burned in a small plane crash nearly two weeks ago. Many other bloggers around the web are doing the same, as tomorrow is "Nie Nie Day" in the blogging world. Gabrielle will be linking to these sites as well--from what I've been hearing from friends and blogger friends, there will be several hundred of these auctions going on tomorrow, as well as various stores on etsy giving proceeds to the Nielson family's recovery fund.

I'd really encourage you to think about checking out and bidding on some of these auctions tomorrow--and whether you bid or not, please keep the Nielson family in your prayers. No, I've never met them, and you probably haven't either, but pray anyway.

For updates on the Nielsons and their four young children (ages 6, 5, 3, and 1), go here.

Hey Rachel,
Do you know if the Beazer's are related to the pilot? I have been watching the blog and saw the letter from a Kim Beazer. Small world.

Brittanie, I actually asked Kim, and she said they're not related, but apparently her husband has a lot of distant family there.
