{ nie nie day...the final stretch }

UPDATE: The auctions and fundraising efforts have been extended to take full advantage of all those who continue to offer their contributions and support. In addition, new auctions are being added daily. For a complete and up-to-date listing of all auctions, visit here.

This weekend I have finally had a chance to catch up on reading some blog posts that I missed while being away last week. I'm sure many of you have already read about Stephanie and Christian Nielson and the tragic plane crash they were in recently. I couldn't help but be deeply touched by their story and the generous outpouring of support by the blogging community to assist the Nielson's and their beautiful family during what is expected to be a long recovery. If you haven't yet, you can read about it here.

Design Mom has organized an amazing online fundraising effort on the Nielson's behalf. It includes 300+ online auctions all summarized here. Many of the auctions end tonight {Sunday} so there's still time to offer your support--every little bit helps!!!

To do my little part and help spread the word, I've highlighted a few of my favorites that are still up for grabs...
