LOVE in the form of snowflakes

Someone in my daughter's birth club posted about the snowflake project to support the Newtown elementary school and to help the teacher's and the PTA give the students a winter wonderland as they move into their new school building in January, and I thought it was a great way to be a part of their recovery.

NEWTOWN, Conn. - When the students Sandy Hook Elementary School move into their new school building after the holiday season, teachers want to brighten their spirits with snowflakes from supporters all over the country.

The Connecticut Parent-Teacher Association is encouraging people to make and send homemade snowflakes to be displayed at the school Sandy Hook students will be attend, Chalk Hill, in a neighboring town. And remember, no two snowflakes are alike - so your unique designs are encouraged.
Please make and send snowflakes by Jan. 12, 2013 to:
Connecticut PTSA
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden, CT 06514

It is a wonderful way for every one of us to take part and support the children, the families and the teachers of Newtown. And even if you are completely overwhelmed with your busyness right now, the good news is they do not need them until January 12th so you have plenty of time!

Will you join me (and hopefully countless others) in showering Newtown with LOVE in the form of paper snowflakes?

My husband's company is teaming up to send snowflakes as well, so we're in! I'm glad we'll be able to make some as a family and hopefully bring some smiles to the kids and teachers faces.
