Love, prayers and a silent auction for the Turner family

Tomorrow (Wed., Oct. 10) we’re participating in a day of blog silence to remember Matt Turner and to pray for his wife, Julee, and other family members/friends who are hurting right now.

As I’m sure many of you know, Matt died in a car accident Saturday night. He left behind not only Julee, but their baby daughter, Preslee. Kelly from Kelly’s Korner is organizing a letter-writing campaign to encourage Julee over the next year. Other friends are holding a silent auction that YOU can participate in next week.

Click here to read details about how to bid during the silent auction — or how to donate an item. This could be a HUGE help to the Turner family, so we need to spread the word about this auction and BID next week.

Also, this coming Friday, Shop Riffraff will donate 15% of all sales to the Preslee Turner College Fund. Click here to read more about how other stores/vendors are offering a percentage of sales to the Turner family.

Our friend, Stephanie at Evolved Mommy, wrote a great post (here) about how to be a friend to a young widow.
