Baby Austin Benefit Auction

Last year, a great friend of mine lost her son. Being a mother I could not even begin to fathom the pain that comes along with losing a child. I was able to get so many amazing vendors to donate great items and raise money to help their family. I was completely in awe of the support I received and the amount of money people were donating. It was such a humbling experience to know that so many people that never met sweet Danielle would be there to help her out in such a rough time.

Yesterday, I learned that Traci Ryant (who you all know takes most of the pictures you see on BreezyBug), has a very close friend, Shanna, who also lost her son, Austin. She had such a short time with him, and my heart completely breaks for her. I know that God has a plan for everyone, and somehow, even if we can't understand, He had a plan for Austin too. I cannot imagine the pain she is feeling right now though. As Traci has said, the last thing she should have to be thinking about right now is the financial burden that will come along with this tragedy.

So that's where I feel I can help.

I would love to get as many vendors as possible to donate to this action. People will be able to bid on the items donated, and all of those proceeds from my paypal will go directly to their family to help with any expenses that they may have. I will also be setting up a paypal donation, so if you do not have anything you would like to bid on, but would still like to help out, you have another option.

Please send any questions you may have, or items you would like to donate to

Below is the donate button in case you would like to just donate any amount. Paypal funds will not be taken out if you use the "donate" button.

Thank you all SO much!
