A Chance to Help

Several years ago I met an artist online. I plied her with questions about colored pencils - and she very patiently answered them all. Despite my selfishness, we became friends. Through the portal of my monitor I have watched my friend and her family go through many things, bravely.

They are now in a very difficult fight - my friend's very young grandson is fighting for his life. They live very far away from me - I can't pick up the phone and call, I can't take a shift, clean, or drop by a meal. But, I can support and spread the word about an auction they are having.

You can find the auction here:

They have a large variety of items - something for writers, something for artists, something for art lovers, even something for Hobbit fans. The auction will be running for several days, so please check back in.

You'll see some of my art in the auction soon.

Please have a look,

Oh Rose, you are awesome :) Thank you for the post :) (and you were never selfish, I always loved talking to you!). Sorry I didn't see this earlier, I've been so busy with the auction!

Wen, I'm glad the auction is keeping you busy! And it's my pleasure to be a part of spreading the word.
