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:

Snowflakes for Sandy Hook 
Please help the students of Sandy Hook have a winter wonderland at their new school! Get Creative!!  Make and send snowflakes to Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT  06514, by January 12, 2013. Snowflakes can also be delivered to CT PTSA.   Please call us before for office hours at 203-281-6617.

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. :)
