I posted recently about a friend that has been going through a VERY tough time. The unimaginable, really. Lauren is a beautiful, amazing lady and I am so blessed to call her friend. She has received so much support and love…it really is amazing to see the online community (and her local community) surround her with open arms and walk this journey with her.
One area of financial support has come in the form of online auctions. I was asked to take part in one that is taking place here in the US, and am so thankful for this opportunity to give something tangible to Lauren, as well as share my bracelet with someone, designed especially for her son, sweet Elijah Rainbow.
Heidi Jo at Swirls of Creativity is hosting this auction and it is a good one. Lots of great products and services offered…so go and place your bid!
The bidding ends tomorrow, Friday, July 20.
Also, if you want to purchase a bracelet from me, all of the proceeds from the sale of the bracelets go directly to Lauren. Visit my Etsy site and see all the details!
If you want to make a donation to Lauren, you can donate to this cause.
If you want to keep up with Lauren and read her inspiring posts, you can go to Sparkling Adventures.
I do want to say that seeing all the compassion that has been poured out to Lauren and her family is so inspiring and reminds me that love is alive and well in the community (online and otherwise) and it blesses me to see people working together to bring a little bit of joy back into a mama’s heart that has been broken. I am so thankful to be part of that community. Love wins, dear Lauren. Love wins.
