Hearts to Newtown

Today some of my fellow bloggers are choosing to participate in a Day of Silence in honor of the victims and families of the Newtown tragedy. I was planning to participate as well, however, I stumbled across this Hearts to Newtown project and wanted to share with you instead!

The premise is simple. Have your children make a heart to honor Newtown. Here are the words from their Facebook page, "We just want to fill the walls of the school, the Newtown library, city hall, the hospital with reminders that children from all over the country are with them. Have your child draw a picture on a heart piece of paper of something "happy or good," include their name, age, and state, and send it to: Include your school, scout troop, baseball team or church in the effort!"

Cut your heart from a standard 8-1/2 x 11-inch paper. If your children are too young to know about the tragedy, just have them decorate the heart with happy things. Include your child's first name, age, and state.

Once completed you can send your hearts to: P.O. Box 754 Bethel, CT 06801

For more information, you can visit the Hearts to Newtown Facebook page.
