Silent Auction for The Turner Family


Sending Love to The Turners

Over the weekend, one of our own lost the love of her life in a tragic car accident.  You can read more about it here.

We know many of us were shocked and saddened by the death of Julee’s husband and baby Preslee’s daddy over the weekend.  It’s hard whenever a loved one’s time is cut short, but especially when it touches someone so young.  And it has put Julee in the position of single parenting her 10-month-old baby girl, in a way that no one should have to face.

We know that she’s surrounded by loved ones, family and friends that can love on her, mourn with her, and be there for her in ways that many of us can’t.  But it has touched a lot of us in Blog and Twitter Land and many want to help in a tangible way.  So here is a way that we can come together and honor Matt Turner and offer what support we can to his wife and daughter.

Next week, October 15th through the 19th, we (Life in the Green House, Life Sweet Life, Knee-Deep in Munchkin Land, The Getts Times, SheSheMade) will be conducting a silent auction with all proceeds going to Julee and Preslee.

To Donate an Item*:

  • Create a post detailing the item up for auction.  Include a description and/or picture.
  • If an item interests you, click on the link to read more information.
  • To place a bid, leave a comment on that blog’s post leaving your email address and your bid.Be sure to check the list often as new items will be added throughout the week.

This is the amazing part of blogging…its watching a community of men and women come together to support one another in need.  Thanks for your willingness to help and we’re looking forward to a successful auction.  And as always, we’re sure that Julee, Preslee, and the rest of their loved ones would greatly appreciate your prayers in the days, weeks, and months ahead.

  4. I have a Scentsy business and would like to have a scentsy online party for Julee and Preslee. I would donate my profits to them. If this is something you would like to add to the silent auction let me know. Its not really an item but maybe somehow you could include it in the auction.
