just saw this on my friends fb page:

This is something fun we can all do for the kids of Sandy Hook. Got this from a friend.

A lot of us are wondering if there's anything we can do for the children in Sandy Hook. A friend of mine's nephew goes to school there and she sent me
this email this morning....

My sister and children live in Sandy Hook. My nephew was attending class at Sandy Hook Elementary School the morning of this tragedy.

So many of you near and far have asked what you could do to help. Students from Sandy Hook will be relocated to another school. The building is being prepped, but could use some sprucing up. Info about our "Snowflakes for Sandy Hook" is below.

Snowflakes for Sandy Hook
Please help the students of Sandy Hook have a winter wonderland at their new school! Get Creative!! No two snowflakes are alike. Make and send snowflakes to Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514, by January 12, 2013

Also, my friend said to make sure you sign your name and write where the snowflake came from (New York City, etc).

I have a cricut paper cutting machine....and a snowflake cartridge, time to get to work I think

Our local schools are participating in this and have invited all the parents to drop in and make one as well.


I think it is a beautiful gesture that will concretely show these children and their community how many people care about what happened to them and want only the best for their futures.
