Compassionate souls

After the bidding had closed on the two designs Sadie and I auctioned off Thursday and Friday we announced the highest bids. A comment was left by a kindly gentleman named Seth saying he wished he had seen the auction sooner. Seth mentioned in the comment that he would have gone at least double or even higher during the auction had he only known about it sooner.

After reading the comment Sadie and I discussed how to proceed, I was admittedly shocked and in state of bewilderment. Unsure how to proceed we decided to offer Seth a redesign, with Pixy Misa's blessing a new home as a part of the MuNuvian family and to let him decide the amount he wanted to donate. Upon receiving our offer Seth replied that he would match the winning bid, tenfold.

As the media focuses on the tragedy that is still unfolding before our very eyes there is hope. The compassionate souls giving from their heart have ensured the people whose worlds have been destroyed have a chance to rebuild, there's once again hope.

It is definitely an honor for Sadie and me to be able to give something back to three of the people who have given so much of themselves. Thanks again to Nugget, Seth and That 1 Guy for providing comfort to those in need.

Apothegm Designs would like to thank everyone who has done whatever they could to ease the pain for those who have been affected by Hurricane Katrina. Those who took the time to bid or promote auction have our utmost gratitude and respect.

Just so you know, if your relief efforts were listed on The Truth Laid Bear, Apothegm Designs would rank 13th (currently) among bloggers in raising money for hurricane victims.

VERY well done.
