How the world responded to a simple request for snowflakes

14 Jan

If you “like” my Webster Blog Facebook page, you’ve already seen this story.  I posted a link to it yesterday pretty much as soon as I heard about it, because I knew it was something that everyone had to see.  So today’s blog is especially for those of you who don’t follow me on Facebook.

You may remember in the week before Christmas I posted a letter from the Sandy Hook Elementary School PTA in Newtown, CT. It introduced what they called the “Snowflake Project,” an idea which came about in the wake of the tragic shooting that occurred there on December 14.  The letter read, in part,

We are asking your students to make and decorate a snowflake. We will hang them in the hallways of the stark, new building where the Sandy Hook students will be returning.

It was a way for people to help bring some happiness into a very sad situation. I know that many individuals and schools in Webster answered the call.  As well as individuals and schools all around the state. And the country. And the world.

But you can see for yourself. Click here to see a story that CBS News did about the incredible response the Snowflake Project received.
