Help Baby Mia

I do not personally know this sweet family, but my heart aches for any family who has a sick child. Here are some words from their blog:

"Baby Mia was born with a severe congenital heart defect and is in need of a new heart. The McDonalds have a job and insurance but after heart operations, and then a heart transplant, additional operations plus all the doctors and medicine and hospital time that this will require... it would financially destroy the best of us. Imagine the emotional rollercoaster that this would put any family on. These are the kind of people that would never ask for help like this. In fact, Mimi has done charity fund raisers for others in the past with nothing to gain for herself. That is why we are stepping in to ask on their behalf. This is what we propose: Donate a few dollars. Donate ONE dollar. It doesn't seem like much, but if you give one and then forward this on to others who donate one; well, one turns into a miracle. If you can afford to give more, please give what you can. Then, send this link to everyone you know and encourage them to make a donation and send it on to people they know. Ask yourself, "What is a heart worth, what is a life worth?""

You can read more about this precious little girl, Baby Mia, and the strength she has already exhibited in her short life thus far.

I know it is small, but I feel compelled to do some little thing to help them out, so I have decided to auction off a custom 16x20 Bibs & Cribs canvas of the winning bidder's choice! To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment with your bid on this post. The winner will be the person with the last, highest bid, and bidding will end at midnight CST on Saturday, November 15, 2008.

Think of it like a (very) silent auction, but for an item you get to choose when the bidding's all done! And with the holidays coming up, even if you don't need it for yourself, think of your Christmas list!!!

Bidding will start at $5 and go in $5 increments, please (or more, if you feel so motivated!). Oh, and I will cover the cost of the shipping to get the canvas to the winning bidder.

And please offer this sweet child up in your prayers tonight!

Happy Bidding! =)

I am going to donate some money on my own as well, but if you would be willing to apply the $75 it normally costs for a 16 x 20 to the canvas you are doing for Avalea to help Mia, then I will place my bid at $75. Does that make sense?
