Hello, I'm popping in for a minute to ask for your help. While going thru my emails this morning one caught my attention. The community at Newport Sandy Hook Elementary is offering a way we can help after the tragedy last Friday. They are getting a different school ready over the holiday break so when the kids come back next year they won't be going back to that school again. They have decided to decorate with SNOWFLAKES and we can help. They are asking you to make any form of a snowflake and provide the address to send it to. What a wonderful suprise for these kids to come back to a WINTER WONDERLAND theme and will feel all the love our nation has for them.
To read about this and get the address please visit www.iheartnaptime.net she also shows how to make snowflakes using coffee filters which is what we will do. I know most of my readers are very creative and also some that can sew or knit, crochet, anything goes and will add even more variety to the snowflakes that will fill their walls.
I hope you can take just a few minutes to make some and send some love and prayers for these families. THEY NEED IT. Everyday there is a funeral and more sad stories coming out about these wonderful kids and the amazing teachers/principal/ janitor that helped to save these kids. My heart is still breaking and the kids and I have had some good talks about this and so have their teachers. Turns out that some of Sam's kids in his class were related to some of the kids, sadly it was the ones that didn't make it. So I'm helping him be a good friend and be there for those kids. Also boys are allowed to cry and show their emotions, it doesn't make them any less of a "COOL" boy.
Thank you for the comments on my last post, thank you for the prayers and thoughts and love your already sending to these families and for me. We are having the last day of school today so I will be running around crazy with last of wrapping and cleaning and hiding presents where they can't find them. HAHA so far hiding them in the empty Christmas tree/ornament/decoration boxes is working.
Thank you for any help with the snowflakes you can send to the community and please feel free to post it on your blog and spread the word. Sending you all love and hugs and PEACE and JOY for the holiday season.
