Christmas Multitasking

Need Christmas presents but also want to do something kind for some else?
I may have a solution for you.

John Jones, his wife Emily and their little girl were in Utah visiting family.
On Thanksgiving day John when caving with some friends at Nutty Putty Cave.
This is a small cave not far from us.
My boys have been there with our scouting group and school friends.

John never came home. You can read the full story here and here.
John is just older than Aaron.
He leaves behind a young widow, a daughter and baby due in June.
My heart goes out to them.

Now about the multitasking.
A kind woman has set up an internet auction here.
All items are donated and the proceeds go to the John Jones Memorial fund
Or you can donate directly to the fund itself.
Either way everyone wins.
Our prayers go out to the Jones family
and hopefully a little than just prayers.

I, too, read this and my heart is breaking for them. I cannot imagine the heartache of having a baby without my husband. She must be a very strong, very choice young woman.

Thank you for the recipe advice! I have not come across that blog, until you gave it to me. Keep 'em coming!
