Temari Auction for Charity

Sometimes a story just tugs at my heart and won't stop. Carol Decker's story is one of those: an expectant mom who had an emergency C-section, developed septic pneumonia, and had such severe difficulties with the medication that she is now a triple amputee and has lost her eyesight. You can find more details and links to news stories about Carol and her family through the link a few lines above; it's too wrenching for me to want to go into any more detail here.

I was just finishing this Temari when I heard about Carol, and it just seemed right to donate it to help out her family. It's available now at Silent Auction for Carol. Bidding starts at just $15 and ends Wednesday, September 24th at 9:00pm PST.

You'll find a number of other wonderful items to bid on there as well. Click on over and bid on something: every additional dollar is a tiny bit of worry the Decker family doesn't have to deal with.
