    The young business owner said customers flocked to her store after it was featured on Scruggs' website.

    "People came in and said, 'I saw you on LoLo Magazine. I wanted to come in and see what you had,'" Mathena said.

    She said she and other businesses featured on the LoLo wanted to do something for the Scruggs family after they learned of the accident.

    Love for Lauren will begin with a rally at 4 p.m. Saturday at the Shops at Legacy North on Lone Star Drive in Plano.

    Afterward, participating businesses such as Love For Pink, Apple Boulevard, HSW Floors and Circa 2000 will put out donation boxes or donate some of their proceeds to the Lauren Scruggs Hope Fund.

    Those who can't make the rally, can also follow along on Facebook.
