Things You Can Do

We've been flooded with e-mails and calls, which we love to read and share among eachother. Many have asked what they can do. Here are some options:

Two donation accounts have been set up. As you can imagine, their recovery will be costly (well into the millions). You can donate by:

Visiting a Bank of America and donating to the "Christian and Stephanie Nielson Rehab Fund."


Visiting a Wells Fargo and donating to the "Stephanie Nielson Fund."

We will be setting up an online ability to donate, probably later today.

Although, visiting is highly restricted right now (only family members) we can post cards, pictures and well-wishes in their rooms (two separate rooms). Of course, they are heavily sedated at this time, but will make these hospital rooms Nie worthy regardless!

Send cards, pictures, etc. to:

c/o Stephanie and Christian Nielson
Maricopa County Hospital
2601 East Roosevelt Street
Phoenix, AZ 85008

Some of you may know that Steph and Christian have a family tradition of writing wishes on helium balloons to release them in the air (see:here.) On Saturday, we'd like to invite people anywhere, everywhere to write thoughts of faith and hope to be released at the same time. (Nie is going to love this!) Lets do 5:00 AZ time (6:00 MST/7:00/Central/8:00/Eastern). Will you all take pictures of the release where you are and e-mail me so we can post them on Monday?

Thanks everyone! We feel your love!
