A Helping Hand for a Worthwhile Cause....

I'm taking part in an Auction Sept. 7th thru the 14th. I've copied and pasted some information about it below and you can click on the Blog link below to learn more about the auction and Artists taking part in it. The proceeds will be used to set up the Miracles for Mallory Fund to help other families affected by this devastating genetic defect.

The information below was copied and pasted from:

"Thank you for visiting our site and showing support for a very wonderful family during their greatest time of need. Crafters and artists from all over have graciously donated their time and items in memory of Mallory for a silent auction. We will be coming together September 7th through September 14th to raise awareness for Trisomy 18, a genetic chromosome disorder afflicting newborns.

Mallory Marie Blankenship was born with this disease. In addition, only one of her heart chambers developed. She also was born with an omphalocele. Mallory was given little to no hope of surviving birth. Beating these odds, Mallory was born on her big sister Drew’s birthday, July 4th, creating a forever and lasting bond with her sister. Mallory fought and beat the odds, staying alive four wonderful days and touching every person who came in contact with her. She was a magnificent little girl, who only blessed lives and knew love. That’s why we refer to her as “our little angel.”

I hope you'll take time to check out Shay's Blog and , of course, join us Sept. 7th for the auction.
