You were probably as dumbfounded as us by the events that took place on Tuesday, the final day of voting. No matter what we did to shore up votes, Autoblog was continually behind this blog we had never heard of written by a Mormon mother. Where'd she come from? As it turns out, c jane enjoy it isn't written by Jane at all, it's written by a woman named Courtney whose sister and brother-in-law, Stephanie (herself a blogger) and Christian Nielson, were badly burned in an airplane accident last August. Courtney's blog is devoted to raising money for their recovery and has gained national attention along the way. You can read about what happened here and donate to the cause here if so inclined.
We've chipped in not because we share Courtney's faith, which we don't, or because want to score brownie points with whichever deity is running the big show, but because we're all in this giant blogosphere together and believe the online community has the power to do good for real people when the opportunity presents itself. And so it has, so go call your mom, kiss your kids and, like we said, help out our worthy adversary if so inclined.
UPDATE: Broken donation link replaced with link to the Nei Recovery website.
