Thank You!

Thanks so much to everyone who participated in the Auction for the Baumgarten Family! It was amazing to see such generous bids placed on our beautiful handmade items. Thank you to those who donated and thank you to those that placed bids- Your participation made this a complete success!
Just in bids alone, we have raised $369! 
Using the PayPal button to the left, you can pay for the item you've won or make a donation to this beautiful family. Every little bit counts, and if the winners donate just $1 more than their bid, we will be able to raise $25 more. (And if each of us donates $2 more we would get into the $400's!) I will be sending an email to the winning bidders by the end of the day telling you how to get in touch with the donor so that they know where to mail the item to you. Once your payment goes through, I will give them the ok and your item will be sent to you. ** If you have not received an email for Christine or me, please contact us so we can get your information.**
Thank you again for your support! I love this organization and the strength I feel from each of you makes this all completely worth it! It's amazing how many of you there are out there who are willing to help others, even though all of us have troubles and trials of our own. I think serving others, even during our tough times, can actually lesson our burden a bit as we try to lift the burden of others. Thank you for your quiet examples of love, friendship and service. I am humbled by the generosity I've seen and the willingness to serve others, even complete strangers!
oh, and p.s. Baby Eliza was born on Saturday! Go here for the cute pics:

Thank you so much for doing this for the Baumgartens. This will pay for almost two months of chemo treatments! Wonderful!!
