This is a good reason of why I love blogging!!
It is a great platform for helping others. I am sure all of you know about Matt Turner who was tragically killed in a car accident and left behind a wife along with a beautiful baby girl.
A few bloggers have gotten together and putting on a silent auction to raise money for Matt's family. I am so honored and blessed to be apart of this.
You can go here to browse other bloggers who have joined and see what all is listed.
Lately I have found my love of crocheting again. So while I have been wondering and stressing about what I could put in this silent auction...I thought..what is better than a hand made gift made with love in honor of the Turner Family.
So I am donating a handmade crocheted circle scarf.
To Bid on an Item:
1. Right now you can just bid on the scarf...if you win..I can let you know all the colors that are available and you can have your choice of what color you would like.
2. Bids should be placed in $1 increments. (Example: If previous bid was $9, your bid must be at least $10.)
3. When you leave your bid, please include your name and email address.
4. Check back often to make sure you haven't been outbid. You will NOT be notified if someone outbids you, so you'll want to be sure to check in on items as the week goes on. Bidding will be closed on Friday, October 19th, at 9pm CST. Winners will be notified via email. All invoices must be paid by October 31, 2012.
Please remember that although this silent auction is amazing and will tremendously help the family...the thing they really need is Prayer.
Pray for his wife and baby girl.
His momma..his daddy....his family and extended family
His friends and co workers
For family friends and his wife's friends to know how to act and what to say in a situation like this.
My heart hurts for them...and I pray peace, joy and understanding come soon!
