{Stephanie's Family pic via blue lily photography}

I heard about a tragic, tragic plane accident that occured and couldn't stop thinking about it. Stephanie and her husband will have millions of dollars in medical bills and a long recovery. Thankfully, Design Mom organized a way to help, declaring today "NieNie Day" and asking for donations. The family has set up a fund for those who want to donate, and I definitely want to help, so for one week, I am conducting a silent auction on their behalf, with your opportunity to help by bidding to win a photoshoot and print credit and/or Indie Actions.

I am donating a full photo session and $150 print credit to the highest bidder {Value: $300}.

I am also donating 10 Indie Action sets to the highest bidders {Value: $30 each}.

{Please check out Design Mom's blog for TONS of additional auctions! Click HERE: }

How the silent auction works:

1) Please place your bid by leaving a comment with your Bid Amount in the comments section of the item you are bidding on. Check the comments to see the most recent High Bid.

2) Following the close of the auction, I will contact the winner (make sure your comment bid includes an email address or link to your blog or some way to contact you). The winner will pay the amount of their winning bid to the Stephanie and Christian PayPal account. The winner will then forward the PayPal receipt to indie underscore annajones at yahoo dotcom and I will be in touch with you and/or will send the actions to you.

3) Please bid in increments of whole dollars. The auction will end in one week at Midnight MST on Thursday, September 4, 2008.

4) Thank you for participating!

And some recent pics, just to compel you to bid =) :

I am so excited about the possibility of a session with you, I may have just peed a little. Did I just write that? Sorry. Synapses in my brain fire at random. Hopefully I can get a session before someone comes to take me away.

I officially bid $115 for the photo session and print credit. (This is so fun I feel like I'm at Sothebys!)

Very kind of you to do this Anna. I'm in tears over this story. I'm also overwhelmed at the compassionate bloggers. Place my bid at $175 for the shoot. Did you get my last email?

I live in Connecticut; it seems most of the auctioneers are in the west. If I bid and am the winner, can the photo shoot be taken some time summer of '09?
