Snowflakes for Sandy Hook

Earlier this week I read about a simple, fun way that people could help out in Newtown, CT.  I am sure everyone is feeling such incredible sadness and hurt, all over the country.  I know personally, that I felt a little helpless knowing that there is nothing I can do, myself, to help out these poor families.  When I saw the "Snowflakes for Sandy Hook" article I knew that this was definitely one way I could help out!
Here is what their PTA website says:

Welcome Students to a Winter Wonderland

When school resumes for Sandy Hook, it will be in a new building. Parent-volunteers are working to ensure that the students are welcomed back by a winter wonderland with the entire school decorated with as many unique snowflakes as possible. We encourage senders to be as creative as possible, remembering that no two snowflakes are alike. Please make and send snowflakes by January 12, 2013 to the Connecticut PTSA address at the bottom of this page.   

I have a school full of children who absolutely LOVE to spend an entire art period making snowflakes for these children across the country!  We started making snowflakes on Tuesday and already have a huge box to send :)
I encourage you all to participate in this as well!!  What a wonderful activity to do as a family or with a group of friends.


You can send your snowflakes to:
Connecticut PTSA
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12
Suite 103
Hamden, CT 06514

Due Date:   January 12, 2013.
