Snowflakes for Sandy Hook

I wasn't planning on posting today but, I had to share this simple way to spread some love to the folks in Newtown. On the National PTA's website, this was posted:

Ways to Help Sandy Hook with National PTA

Welcome Students to a Winter Wonderland 

When school resumes for Sandy Hook, it will be in a new building. Parent-volunteers are working to ensure that the students are welcomed back by a winter wonderland with the entire school decorated with as many unique snowflakes as possible. We encourage senders to be as creative as possible, remembering that no two snowflakes are alike. Please make and send snowflakes by January 12, 2013 to the Connecticut PTSA address at the bottom of this page.   

Donating and Organizing Fundraisers for Sandy Hook Elementary School 

Donations will be accepted indefinitely to the Connecticut PTSA “Sandy Hook Fund” to provide ongoing support to the community. Please send checks to the Connecticut PTSA address listed at the bottom of this page. Group fundraising projects may include walk-a-thons, spirits days, pajama days, etc., which may be scheduled at your convenience. 

For student-run coin drives, please submit all donations by February 14, 2013. 

The Newtown community has requested only monetary donations at this time. For service or product donation inquiries, please contactnewtownboe@gmail.com. To contact Sandy Hook PTA, please emailsandyhook@ctpta.org

Please send all snowflakes and donations to:
Connecticut PTSA
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden, CT 06514

Here are a few fun snowflake ideas, that would be great to make with your kids:
Coffee Filter Snowflakes from The Pink Couch Blog

Six Sided Paper Snowflakes from Delia Creates

Cupcake Liner Snowflakes from Real Simple

Once your snowflakes are finished, mail them to the address below. Share this with your friends and help spread the word!
