I woke up this morning and started my day as usual, by reading the new entries from my favorite list of blogs. I came across CraftyTammie's blog where she introduced me to Jenny Reeder, and the We Love Jenny Auction.
Jenny Reeder was diagnosed with leukemia in November, and went from being a full-time PhD student to being a full-time patient, dedicated to beating the cancer that was attacking her body. Where her days were filled with reading, writing, and researching, they are now comprised of chemo, shots, rest and lots of waiting. With two months down and two years to go, cancer-beating has proved to be a very expensive ordeal! In an effort to help Jenny with her expenses, her friends have put together an auction in which retailers/moms/students/Etsy shops/friends/family/anyone can donate time and talents for sale and all the proceeds go to Jenny’s treatment fund.
After reading Jenny's story I KNEW that I had to do something to help, thus I'm participating in the auction, by donating a Nursing Cocoon (Free Spirit's Robots).
The Auction will begin on Valentine’s Day, February 14th at 9am and close on February 15th at 10pm EST. Don't feel obligated to participate, however should you feel called to do so, additional details can be found here.
