What's so funny?

You are. You know you are. I've read your blog. I've smiled, I've laughed, and maybe I've even commented a time to two to just add to the humor of it all.

Well, now there is something we can all do with our humor.

Check this out:
The idea comes from Navel Gazing at its finest and it's called the Blog Book. The hope is to raise money for the Nielsen family. For those of you who are non-locals, you may not be aware of the Nielsens. If that is the case, I encourage you to read their story on the NieNie Recovery Blog.

In a nutshell:
On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Stephanie Nielson was in a plane crash with her husband, Christian Nielson, and his flight instructor, Doug Kinneard, near St. Johns, Arizona. Doug Kinneard passed away soon after arriving at the Maricopa County Hospital.Christian & Stephanie remain in critical condition at Maricopa Burn Center. Christian has sustained burns on over 30% of his body. His wife Stephanie’s body was burned over 80%. Christian and Stephanie have 4 small children,

Nope, I've never met this family, nor have I met the many dedicated and concerned family and friends that have surrounded this couple with their love and support. But their story of how the community has come together to support them in their hours of need is truly amazing. Please, if you will, check it out and show your support too!

*Thanks Vern and Dodi for bringing this project to my attention!
