{Project Snowflake}

A good friend of mine, Kara, from Petals to Picots, has organized something amazing for the children of Newtown, Connecticut taking place over the next few weeks.  I’ll be participating, and I hope you’ll join me!
On December 14, the peace and innocence of Newtown, Connecticut was shattered and 26 people lost their lives, 20 of which were dear, sweet children. I have no words …

Now the students and faculty of Sandy Hook Elementary School are preparing to begin classes again in a new location. To ease their return, the Connecticut PTSA has organized The Snowflake Project to create a winter wonderland in their new school.

 
I think this is a wonderful idea and I am so happy to be able to do something … anything … to help. So who is with me? Let’s get the word out and give these kids a gorgeous snowy wonderland to welcome them to  their new school and to show them that we care.
 
So grab the button, spread the word, and get creating … And make sure to come back on 1/9 for a Project Snowflake linky party.
 
Here are the details …
 
They are asking for everyone to make and send snowflakes for them to hang around the school. Their only request is that the snowflakes have no words on them … think bright, and sparkly, and happy, and magical …
 
Snowflakes are to be sent by January 12, 2013 to:
 
Connecticut PTSA
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden, CT 06514
 

You can check out the CT PTA website or Sandy Children Help on Facebook for more information or updates. They are also putting together a photo album of the snowflakes; you can send photos to crafts4newtown@gmail.com. Please include a note to let them know where the snowflakes are coming from (school, grade or age, town etc).
