Bloom

I can't quite remember how I stumbled upon this story on Monday but it instantly broke my heart. I have been so blessed to have 2 healthy children I cannot even begin to imagine this families world. I knew I wanted to do a little something to help but they were already closed for donations. I emailed anyways and they said OF COURSE! I, like most people am short on time always and try to be careful with what I spend money on (not always so good) but this truly is a good thing to spend on! I donated a few items to be auctioned and will be heading over to find something to bid on!
I hope you will consider doing the same!

Here is the deal:
*****************************************************
Looking for a way to provide service this holiday season? Here is a great opportunity. Starting Thursday, December 10th, there will be a charity auction at BLOOM (www.placetobloom.blogspot.com) to benefit Claire and Benson Skinner.
As explained by their parents, "Benson and Claire were born with a rare genetic disease in which their liver produces too much oxalate--called primary hyperoxaluria. Claire's condition has progressed much faster than Benson's. She has been on dialysis since she was 3 months old and is on dialysis 3 hours a day, 6 days a week. She is now on the waiting list to receive a combined kidney / liver transplant. It is expected Benson will eventually need similar transplants."
You can read more about the Skinners' experience HERE. (givehopetobensonandclaire.blogspot.com)
All proceeds from the auction at BLOOM will go directly to Claire's COTA (Children's Organ Transplant Association) account to help pay for her transplant.

Please head over to BLOOM Thursday-Saturday for the auction!
