Day 22…Snowflakes for Sandy Hook…

Today is my birthday and my birthday wish is that everyone who reads this post today participates in today’s project.  So I chose something super easy today that you can do for the cost of a stamp, an envelope and a few sheets of paper.

After Christmas, the kids from Sandy Hook Elementary are going back to school in a new building.  Volunteers and school employees have been going to great lengths to make sure that everything is as normal as possible for the kids to help ease their transition.  They even went so far as to take pictures of the old classrooms so they could be sure they were putting things exactly right into the new rooms.  They are working so hard that when they made a request of the public, there was no way I could ever say no.

The Sandy Hook PTA would like to create a winter wonderland for the kids to come back to.  They want to decorate the entire school with paper snowflakes and they need help from us.  They are asking that everyone make a few paper snowflakes and send them to the school.  Paper snowflakes are a piece of cake.  I made these in about 15 minutes…




This is something so simple, but it can have such a huge impact.  If everyone makes just one snowflake, the kids are going to be able to walk into a huge outpouring of love and support.  They will know that everyone in the country is thinking of them and maybe that will make them feel a little safer.

So grab some paper and a pair of scissors and get to work.  Send your finished flakes to:

Connecticut PTSA
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden, Ct. 06514

The school needs them before January 12th…so get to work!  Let’s all pitch in to give Sandy Hook a great present.
