Bloom auction for a good cause

Looking for a way to provide service this holiday season? Here is a great opportunity. Head on over to BLOOM! I am participating in a charity auction that begins today, Thursday, December 10th, 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.

There will be lots of great items available, and I am donating a mini family photo session and an 11x14 print of one of my poppy photos.

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!
