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 show them that we care.
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, sparkly, happy, and magical!
Snowflakes are to be sent by January 12, 2013 to:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a note to let them know where the snowflakes are coming from (school, grade or age, town etc).
So grab the button, spread the word, and get creating!! And make sure to come back on January 9th for a Project Snowflake linky party.
