Box of Crayons for Sandy Hook Elementary
**Edited on Dec 28th, the squares for Hands, Hearts, and Hugs are now on Hold. Do not make anymore 6 inch squares, the direction of the group is pending. Sandy Hook has had such an outpouring of help, they've asked people to please stop sending gifts.**
I don't believe it's possible to not be touched/moved and want to do something for the grieving families in Sandy Hook Elementary. A friend (Marie Anne), I've gotten to know through my charity blog, Bridge and Beyond has started a group on Facebook to make comfort ghans for the families.
She's asking for help with 6 inch squares, and help in assembling the ghans. You can read the details on facebook, Hands, Hearts and Hugs
I'm putting these afghan together, calling it Box of Crayons, with squares donated to Bridge and Beyond. Have begun edging the squares with off white and will possibly join in green; and do a couple of rows of each color for the border. The school, Sandy Hook's colors are green and white.
Late to post today for WIPW, will be visiting your blogs over the next couple of days. Badges and links in meme tab above.
