I'm sure you've all heard by now about the Flying Heart Fundraiser to benefit Melissa and Herman Gaulding who are struggling with mounting medical bills, so much so that Melissa announced she was going to be selling her beloved clinkie collection. Since then, hobbyists have more than risen to the occassion to help Melly and her busband, raising nearly $11,000 to date. I think Karen Gerhardt expressed it best when she said, "if a large number of people sold one precious item from their collection, then maybe Melly wouldn't have to sell ALL of hers. We are all bearing her pain just a little by spreading it out and maybe making it not hurt so much."
I have just finished a fun little donation horse, and he's up on Auction Barn now. 100% of the proceeds go to Melly. :)
