Help for Lucinda...............

For those of you who might never of heard of ETSY, it is a website based on the sale of handmade items, supplies for making said items, and vintage collectibles. As a beginning jewelry artist, I am a frequent visitor/buyer on the site and have made a number of friends there. To say Etsy is more than a site for buying and selling is an understatement. It is a COMMUNITY where people buy, sell, trade, teach, learn, and build real relationships. So it was with great sorrow I learned of Lucinda, an artist/seller who has experienced a terrible loss and of those who are trying to help her rebuild her life. Lucinda had already lost her mom a couple months ago, which I can tell you from recent personal experience is painful enough in itself. Now a fire has claimed the life of Lucinda's young son Kevin, her home, and pets. The thought of her anguish brought tears to my eyes and moved my heart to help in any way I can.

If you would like to help Lucinda's family, of course, prayer would be most helpful. Lucinda's family is going to need a lot of help to get back on their feet and prayer is essential in that happening. However if you would also like to contribute financially and get some cool stuff for yourself too, a site has been set up where you can buy donated items and all the proceeds will go to Lucinda's family. All you need is a Paypal account. There are hundreds of items to choose from in all price ranges, so you are sure to find something affordable and wonderful for yourself or a friend.

Or if you'd prefer to simply send a donation:

Boardman Family Fund

Wow. What great loss. Reminds me of the tragedy that beset Job and his wife. I stand with you in prayer for Lucinda and her family.
