Fundraiser for victims in Connecticut
A few of his ward members attend Sandy Hook Elementary and one little girl in particular lost her life. Her father, Robbie Parker, spoke out about the shooting with a heart open only to love. Monday morning, my sweet, sweet brother Brett was interviewed on Good Morning America, along with two other religious leaders. All three of whom, have inspired many of us to be a little better.
Last Friday morning, before I heard about the shooting, my mind was focused on my children. I was worried that they were going to be discouraged on Christmas morning, because I had only bought a few of the items on their list. When I came home and watched the news, I listened as one sweet mother spoke about her little angel wanting a horse for Christmas and how they had purchased cowboy boots for her. Suddenly my mind took a little perspective on things.
I've been watching my brother and his family mourn with their friends from afar and my heart is so saddened. It was only a few years ago, that my little town was mourning the loss of a sweet angel too. All I can think, is that Heavenly Father must really need these tender and ambitious Spirits on the other side to help with the work load.
I've gotten together with several of my friends. We have put together an auction here on my blog. We are hoping that all of you might be willing to help us raise some more funds for these sweet families??? Every single penny earned here will go directly to the Emilie Parker Fund. This fund was originally established to just help Emilie's family, but her family has decided to divide up all the money with each of the families affected by this horrific tragedy. So you can rest assure that all of your money will be helping each family of these victims:
Charlotte, Daniel, Rachel, Olivia, Dylan, Chase, Dawn, Jesse, Ana, James, Grace, Anne Marie, Emilie, Jack, Noah, Jessica, Avielle, Lauren, Mary, Victoria, Benjamin, Joshephine, Madeleine, Catherine, Caroline, and Allison
We have listed items below and each item is priced lower than what you would purchase at retail. To bid, all you have to do is place your bid in the comments section. The bidding will end in one week, December 26th at 4:00pm.
Please leave your email address with each bid in case we need to contact you. We will have a paypal account set up specifically for winning bids, but if you'd like to directly donate, we are encouraging that you do so to the Emilie Parker Fund.
