So many of the people I have spoken with over the last few days are struggling with the tragedy that happened in Connecticut last week and are eager to help, but not quite sure where to begin.
I have seen many groups forming together to do good deeds, or practice moments of silence, and send holiday cards to these families.
This post, from the Conneticut PTSA, is the first I have seen from the area requesting things the community actually needs and wants.
I'm ready to show my support any way I can, but to have a clear defined path I know will benefit this community and its families and children really helps.
MaryAnne of MamaSmiles.com shared the Snowflakes for Sandy Hook project with me this morning.
The Connecticut PTSA is hoping to gather as many creative and unique snowflakes as possible to give the children of Sandy Hook Elementary a winter wonderland in their new school.
I hope you will take part and send your snowflakes to the following address by January 12, 2013.
60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514
MaryAnne has teamed up with a local librarian to hold a snowflake making party with many children in her community. If you decide to do something similar, leave a comment here or reach out to her. She would love to hear about your efforts.
