We are not living in eternity.
We only have this moment.
Sparkling like a star in our hand
And melting like a snowflake.
Marie Beynon Ray
There is a national campaign to transform Chalk Hill School where the former students of Sandy Hook will attend in January into a winter wonderland. It is the hope this transformation will raise their spirits knowing so many people around the world care and share their grief. The movement has been spearheaded by the National PTA and the Connecticut PTSA organizations and their PTA president Betsy Landers. The movement is a way for others to show their support to Sandy Hook students and their families. Cheryle Carter, from Minnesota, was determined that Minnesota could also do its part. She launched a blog and a YouTube tutorial on the Snowflakes for Sandy Hook Students .
There still is time for you to be a part of this campaign as snowflakes will be collected till January 12th. If you GOOGLE search the project title you will be amazed how much information is out there.
This link http://amazingdesignsblog.com/tag/snowflakes-for-sandy-hook/ offers 450 different snowflake designs as well as templates to help you create snowflake designs.
Carter has created a Facebook page for Snowflakes for Sandy Hook for more information. http://www.facebook.com/SnowflakesForSandyHookMinnesota
Donors need to remember to put their names, hometowns and state on their snowflakes. They can be mailed directly to Newtown.
