Nie and her husband were in a serious plane crash in Arizona and are currently in a coma with burns all over their bodies. The pilot of the plane died (they were in a small private plane.) Some of you might have heard through other blogs and through the news in Utah and Arizona. You can read the news story here http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=148&sid=4054762 and here http://www.azfamily.com/video/localnews-index.html?nvid=273958 .
This blogger decided she could help by organizing the blog world together to raise some money for Nie and her care that she is receiving. The bills will be huge and they are doing all they can to help Nie and her husband raise some some while they are in a coma and don't know what they are in for.
