It’s Not All Mary Poppins

A Very Good Bad Auction

Her Bad Auction

Some months ago, Her Bad Mother discovered that her nephew, Tanner, has Muscular Distrophy. For Tanner’s story, follow the link. Take kleenex.

What can you do in the face of something so cruel and inexorable? The only thing to do is offer what support you can. When you’re in the room with the person, that might mean holding their hand in silence. When you’re a stranger, miles away, and feel your heart aching for this mother you’ve never met, this family in pain, you find other ways.

A few creative mothers put their heads together and came up with An Idea. We’ll have an auction, a virtual auction. We’ll take donations from bloggers, and put them up to auction, with the proceeds going to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy research. I’ve made a donation – those of you who’ve read me for long enough will understand my choice of gift. (She grins.)

Please, go. Bid.

It’s the least we can do.
