Will you help?

My friend Shay over at Old Colonial Peddler is hosting a silent charity auction in honor of her sweet little niece Mallory. I've copied and pasted the info from the
If you are inclined to give, please contact her :)

Crafters and artists from all over have graciously donated their time and items in memory of Mallory for a silent auction.

We will be coming together September 7th through September 14th to raise awareness for Trisomy 18, a genetic chromosome disorder afflicting newborns.Mallory Marie Blankenship was born with this disease. In addition, only one of her heart chambers developed. She also was born with an omphalocele.

Mallory was given little to no hope of surviving birth. Beating these odds, Mallory was born on her big sister Drew’s birthday, July 4th, creating a forever and lasting bond with her sister. Mallory fought and beat the odds, staying alive four wonderful days and touching every person who came in contact with her. She was a magnificent little girl, who only blessed lives and knew love. That’s why we refer to her as “our little angel.”If you are a crafter or artist and would like to donate in memory of Mallory, please contact us at: miraclesformallory@yahoo.comWe are so grateful for all the support received thus far, our family thanks you all for your unconditional gratitude.
