Snowflakes for Sandy Hook

The tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School has left many of us feeling shaken. As a teacher in Connecticut and a mom, I am heartbroken for everyone who has been affected and it feels way too close to home. When I saw the Snowflakes for Sandy Hook idea posted on Facebook this morning I thought it would be a nice way for us to contribute in some small way.

From the Connecticut PTSA:

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

So we made some snowflakes and will send them in. My kids are too little to know about the shootings, thank goodness, but I told 2.5 year old Joshua that we’re making these snowflakes to help cheer up some kids who are sad. More info on Snowflakes for Sandy Hook can be found here.

  7. Our principal sent us an email about this snowflake campaign too. I bet they’ll get more snowflakes than they know what to do with.
