It's been a little bit since I posted. I recently found out about a 15 year old girl named Eleigh who died in a car accident. Here is a little bit about her. Deconstructress was a friend of the family and I found out about it from a treasury on Etsy. This is what she wrote:
On June 4, 2008, my very good friends, the Lecates family, lost their 15-year-old daughter in a terrible car accident. Eleigh was the most beautiful girl and she had her entire life ahead of her. She was full of promise and her mother's best friend in the world. She was always at her mom's side. The last thing I want my friends to experience now is any financial hardship and I want to auction a dress here to donate ALL of the sale to them. (She is donating one of her beautiful handmade dresses to help and has a listing on Ebay and Etsy for it.)
I've donated a few paintings for the cause and a bookmark. 100% of the proceeds will go to help this family out. I can't imagine the grief this family is going through so if you can help this family out I'm sure it would help ease their minds. Thank you for considering this cause.
Here is the treasury with some items other Etsians are donating to help. You can also search on Etsy with her name like this "for eleigh" to see all the items that have been donated.
