Glass for Taite - Trade Me Auction of Cast Glass - raising funds for a very sick boy - 19th Jun 2015

Taite Lentfer is a 9 year old boy.

He should be in my daughters class at school. He should be in the soccer team I am coaching.

I can see his house from my studio. He should be there, but he is not.

About 3 months ago he was admitted to Starship Hospital and they found out he has ADEM - an auto immune disease. He got sick real fast with his immune system attacking the cells in his brain and reducing muscle function to nothing. Taite and family (Dad Kori, Mum Lanie and sister Holly) are living away from home at Takapuna's Wilson Centre where Taite is receiving lots of therapy. He has come a long way, he now has some muscle movement and can even smile, but he has such a long way to go, with lots of ongoing care required from family and specialists.

I wanted to do something for the Lentfer family...a situation like this could affect any of us.  Money won't make Taite better but it sure can help to relieve some burdens on the Lentfer family.

There are 2 ways you can help Taite....

Bid on this auction - winner will get this unique cast glass artwork of the BLUE FAMILY....and allow the Lentfer family to have their own special glass piece, the GREEN FAMILY.

or....Share this story - as someone you know may like to bid. Simply forward the email.

Trade Me auction #904520680.  Closes Saturday 27 June, 9.52pm.
You can see more images on Dicastglass facebook page.
Smaller donations can also be made to Taites 'Give A Little' fund.

Thank you for reading
