Bloggers come together when it matters….

by jennine on September 7, 2008

Three weeks ago, a small private plane crashed severely injuring Stephanie Nielson, aka NieNie, a blogger.
NieNie’s husband Christian was burned over 30% of his body, and Stephanie was burned over 80% of hers. Flight instructor Doug Kinneard died in the crash.

If any of you were to doubt of the kindness of the community, people like Wendy Brandes will knock you right out of it. Holding a benefit auction to help raise the money to pay for medical expenses needed for NieNie and her husband’s recovery.

Wendy is currently auctioning the gorgeous Silver Diana Pendant, if it’s anything like the Diana ring (which I tried on at a dinner with Ms. Brandes last year) it’s beautifully formed, way more touchy feely than any other piece of silver I’ve ever felt.

For more information, the NYT wrote a touching article about bloggers banding together for Nienie.

indeed such a terrible incident, such sad news. mypreayers are with them. I just visited Wendy’s blog, bid is up to 300! -huge-hearted auction that it can def. make a difference. I cant afford to bid, but will be checking into doing it thru perhaps (nienie/info) blog.
Thanks for bringing awareness with this post; this is truly what the human touch brings to these cybertools/& cyberworld, and makes it all worth it to connect and unite <3

Mell, if you can’t afford to bid on the necklace, you can make a smaller contribution to NieNie’s fund through the blue button on my blog :-)
