Virtual Snowflakes for Newtown
As many of you know, the children from Sandy Hook Elementary are returning to school today. The refurbished building they are using has been decorated with millions of paper snowflakes created by children all over the world and sent in, at the request of the Sandy Hook PTA — who wanted to show students that no two snowflakes, just like kids, are alike.
They were awed and overwhelmed by the number of snowflakes received, and have since asked that no more be sent.
We have created a new website where kids (and adults) all around the world can create a virtual snowflake and send a message to the families affected by the Newtown tragedy.
“Kurt and I wanted to create a space where families could go and share their feelings of peace and love with the families of Newtown,” said Jim Robinson, co-creator of KneeBouncers. “And also be able to read all the good that is being sent to them. Reinforcing that there is so much more good than bad out there, it is important for kids to know that.”
