Happy Nie Nie Day

I don't know the Nielsons, but have been brought to tears reading about their family's tragic accident and road to recovery. Design Mom declared today Nie Nie day, and asked the blogging community to spread the word.

Last week Christian and Stephanie Nielson were in a very serious plane crash. They are a young couple with four children under the age of six. They are in critical condition. Stephanie has third degree burns covering 80% of her body and Christian has third degree burns over 30% of his body. The recovery will be very long and very expensive.

If you are able, please consider contributing to this fund that will go directly to the family: Nie Recovery.

Today, several websites are auctioning off items for their benefit. Go here to see the comprehensive list: Design Mom.

Updates about Stephanie and Christian here on her sister's blog.

Thanks so much for bringing this worthy cause to our attention! If anyone is interested, I'm holding an auction on my blog for a super-soft knitted scarf (you choose the color)to raise funds for Nie Recovery.
