Today is the start of a magical weekend. It is a weekend that already is brimming with love and community and kindness.

It is the start of the Bloggers for Jeni Auction. Please click over here to view some of the amazing objects in the store. There are beautiful prints offered by some talented Shutter Sisters. There are adorable baby clothes, a necklace made by this superhero, beautiful hand carved wooden bowls, products to pamper oneself. There is one special offering for a comfy day with one of my favorite authors Karen Maezen Miller.  The auction will be up and running through Thursday May 1.

All of the money raised will go to support our dear friend Jennifer Ballantyne, a courageous cancer warrior and her 6 year old son Jack. Money will be used to help Jen get access to care not covered by insurance as well as provide a trust for little Jack, a charming boy who sings love songs to his mother each night.

Here are some things you can do to help spread the word and help us create some miracles for Jen and Jack:

1)  Go over to the auction, find something special and bid.

2)  Let friends and family know about the auction.

3)  If you blog, please post about the auction and include a link to it.

Wishing you a weekend full of miracles and magic.

    Best wishes for a fantastic auction and my prayers for Jenni. I have known Jenni since I met you on Bamboo journal at Vox. No, Jenni does not know me, but I did light Jen Lemen’s candle for her and my dad.

    Also wishing the best for the auction. I have a tiny readership. But when I sit down at the coffee shop later this weekend I will spend some time writing about the auction.

    My heart opens wide with thoughts of love for all that you and your friends are doing for her and for Jenni and Jack…
