When I was informed of transformative efforts to create a “winter wonderland” for Sandy Hook students as they return to a new school in 2013, I knew that my family would love to join in. Our hearts have been heavy with unspeakable devastation and we’ve been trying to take action in ways that we can. The Sandy Hook PTA and Connecticut PTSA has requested a beautifully simplistic way to help out – through creating and sending paper snowflakes.
We made 26 total. Cut by Bob, glittered by little ones and mama – all made with love. In the midst of tragedy, I like to think of this simple gesture as a glimmer of hope, a homemade welcoming committee and a vision of beauty flooding the school hallways.
Send your snowflakes (by January 12, 2013) to the below address:
