Dawn Habisreitinger; Fellow Etsian, Fellow Friend




Many Etsians, including myself, have been taking part in a great effort to raise money for two sweet boys who lost their Mother just days before Christmas in a horrible motorcycle accident. Dawn made jewelry and lampwork beads. She had a store both on Ebay and Etsy.

She was just getting her life back to normal after having to rebuild her home. Dawn and her boys had to leave southern Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina ripped through the shores of New Orleans and Slidell in August 2005.

We're still working very hard to raise money for these little boys. Dawn would have turned 31 on January 13.

We had some long nights pushing for Dawn's boys and so much support, I really enjoyed your company there (and for keeping me awake). We're coming up with plans for January 13th, it would have been Dawn's 31st birthday.

Excellent post about Dawn's boys! It's been a pleasure "meeting" such fine people like you in Bluesaphire's AKA duracell bunny thread - sadly, it's a tragic situation that brought us together.

PS Chloe is adorable!

I'm grateful for the new Etsy friends I've made through the forum effort, and pleased to see how we've rallied round for someone most of us never knew.

It's very confusing and frustrating, the things that God gives his children to handle. These two boys are going to be fine with the outpouring of love and compassion that people like you and many others have shown. It takes a community to raise a child, and in this case, two. I will donate what I can to help the cause. I would want it if it were my son who was left alone in such a tragic way.
