Helping out Nie

Yesterday an auction began for blogger Stephanie and her husband Christian, who were severely injured in a plane crash. The couple are the parents of four small children, and the recovery from their terrible burn injuries will be slow and difficult—and expensive. To help raise funds, Gabrielle, aka Design Mom, coordinated this auction. It's still going strong with over 300 items for sale, and if you want to take part, this post links to the many, many generous people who are pitching in. Donations, prayers, and well wishes are also needed, of course.

I don't know Stephanie, but she must be an amazing person to inspire this kind of effort on her and her family's behalf. It's stuff like this that makes me fall in love with the Internet all over again.
