When I heard the tragic news of the recent school shooting, my heart ached for the children of Sandy Hook Elementary School and their families. For a child to witness that kind of violence and hate is crushing.
In January, the children of Sandy Hook will return to school, and the PTA in Newton has come up with a way to greet the students in a super cool and symbolic way. They have sent out a request for people to donate handmade snowflakes so that they can decorate the school as a winter wonderland.
Imagine walking through the school and seeing countless individual and unique snowflakes from so many loving people. People who wish them well and who care.
My family and I plan on taking part in this effort by making and sending as many snowflakes as we can, and I invite you to join our efforts. All you have to do is create snowflakes however you do it best and drop them off at Indy Upcycle by January 8th or mail them yourself before January 12th to:
