There are a lot of things I hate about social media, but the one thing I do love is that outlets like FB, Twitter, and blogs sometime allow us the ability to stick together, or reach out and help someone we've never even met. We see that time and time again in the blog world, where we bolster one another in times of joy, sorrow, and especially need. So it was no surprise when I visited Cindy at Fat Cow Studio and saw a post about one of her FB friends who is in need.
Now I don't know Cindy's friend Amy from Junk Love & Co., but I really don't need to. The important thing is that Amy's father in law and son were in a terrible accident and her son is in a PICU (pediatric intensive care unit) in Vegas. Scary times as you can imagine for any parent. And as you can also imagine, the bills will be mounting.
Being the clever and industrious community that we are through our blogs and FB, another friend of Amy and her family jumped in to action and has organized an online FB auction to try and raise funds to help this family out in their time of need.
Her name is Barbara, and she is known as the Shabby Cowgirl . Through her efforts, she has gathered a whole host of great auction items that will be up for grabs today between 12 pm PST until 7 pm PST.
I've donated a 12 x 12 wrapped canvas to the auction. You can pick the artwork, one of the ones you see featured in this post, one from my last post, or anything from my website HERE.
The choice is yours, but no matter what you pick, the money will be for a good cause and that always makes buying something even more fun. And please spread the word, the more we can get this out there the more money we can raise for this family!
My thoughts go out to Amy and her family, and I wish both her father in law and her sweet son a very speedy recovery from their accident!
