Happy thoughts: Snowflakes for Sandy Hook
What's better than a paper snowflake? One that is hand made for a very special cause! A very thoughtful Erica posted this post about Snowflakes for Sandy Hook. My heart just about melted. The Connecticut PTSA is hoping to create a winter wonderland for their new school, and everyone is welcome to help.
Here is a brief statement from the Connecticut PTSA website:
Connecticut PTSA is deeply saddened by the tragedy that has struck our Newtown community. We have met with the PTA and community leaders in Newtown and Sandy Hook Elementary to offer our assistance at this very difficult time. They have asked us to spearhead the following efforts on their behalf:

Amidst the heartbreak of the recent tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary, kindness is shining through. My happy thoughts this week are definitely bittersweet. I wish I had the words or the means to make everything right, but these snowflakes are a sweet way to show support. I've got more hand made snowflakes than I will ever need, and two hands, some scissors, and some paper. That's all it takes.
Thank you, Erica, for sharing this. :)
