One Family’s Tragedy, Please Help!!

One of my favorite parts about blogging is connecting as a community.  A year and 1/2 ago I “met” Heidi in the Crafting With The Stars Competition.  She is talented beyond all belief and truly a genuine sweet person.

This week tragedy struck her family.   After giving birth to their 3rd child Heidi’s Sister In Law Alice contracted Strep A Toxic Shock and passed away leaving behind a grieving husband and 3 small children including their brand new baby daughter.  As if going through this wasn’t enough already Heidi’s brother just graduated with his MBA and has yet to find a job and they did not have insurance.

If there is any way that you can make a donation to help this sweet family it will be a huge blessing in this horrific life changing moment.

You can donate here. (Donate button is on the right sidebar)

Thank you everyone for your help.  My heart is broken for this sweet family even putting myself in their situation momentarily is unbearable.  I know that this family will be together again.

Love  Your  Guts,  Mandi

    Oh Mandy! We have some friends who just went through the same thing (except he had a job). It is completely heart breaking. My thoughts and prayers go out to this family during their time of need.

    Mandi – are they aware of the Liz Logelin Foundation?

    Thought and prayers go out to the family.

    this just breaks my heart. This story makes you realize how precious life is and how God always had a bigger plan than ours. I’m praying for this family and will continue to do so…thank you for posting.

    Praying for strength. Praying for shelter in the midst of this very sad storm. If we all donate a little maybe that will at least ease a very small portion of this families struggles. Thank you for letting us know and giving us the opportunity to help in a small way.

    I saw that on Heidi’s blog (which I just barely found) this past week and it’s just heartbreaking. You are a good friend to help out!
