Love for Nie

From the Nie Recovery 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%.

For the past four years, Stephanie has welcomed us into her charming abode through the NieNie Dialogues. Far from being a product of creative editing, the Nielson’s don’t just shine through the selective lens of a blog. They are ingenuous examples of family devotion, eternal romance, and Christ centered faith."

An amazing thing has happened in the blogging world as people unite in their efforts to help the Nielson family, and Oh Sweet Sadie! would be honored to be a part of it. We will have a booth at both of our fall shows where anyone can donate boutique quality items (no yard sale items, please) and 100% of the sale will be donated to Nie Recovery. We hope our artisans will support our efforts by donating items, but we would also love to see some prospective vendors and amazing crafty do-gooders donate some of their creations to the cause. If you have something you would like to donate to the booth, please contact me for more details.

When you come to the show, please make sure you stop by the Nie Recovery table- we know your big hearts will go a long way to help this little family in desperate need.
