on a chance to help...

I just heard about this, and wanted to give anyone else the opportunity to help out this family after such a tragedy. The following information was taken from their website:

"On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Stephanie Nielson was in a plane crash with her husband, Christian Nielson, and his flight instructor, Doug Kinnear, near St. Johns, Arizona. Doug Kinnear passed away soon after arriving at the Maricopa County Hospital. Christian & Stephanie remain in critical condition at Maricopa Burn Center. Christian has sustained burns on over 30% of his body. His wife Stephanie’s body was burned over 80%."

Anything you choose to donate goes directly to their medical bills and household expenses. I'm sure that absolutely anything will be appreciated, and if you are unable to give, please keep this family in your prayers. For more information and opportunities, please check out their website. You can also check out NieNie's blog here.

(For some odd reason, I can't get the image to link to the correct place on Paypal. If you would like to donate, you can find all the information listed on the website that I linked to.)


  1. that is incredibly sad, and I will definitely be praying. Wow. I can't even imagine.

  2. I heard about this on one of the blogs I read. I bid in a swaddle baby blanket, even though children are nowhere in my future.

  3. hi friend, thanks for posting this and letting people know how we can help. it is so incredibly tragic, so sad. it really amazes me though how all the community of bloggers are pulling together to support the family. through auctions, donations, fundraisers, it is so refreshing that there is still some good in our society and that people will do kind things for others whom they don't even know.

    it's hard to remember that amidst all the angry drivers and rude/angry/mean people that i encounter day to day. (in southern cali at least) but anyway, ha sorry for the rant. hope you have a great week.
