Help Make Snowflakes for Newtown Kids

Snowflake creators from throughout the country say they want to join the effort.

People across the country have had the families of Newtown, Conn. in their minds for the past couple of weeks—and, during the holidays, they're in our thoughts more than ever as so many families don't have all their loved ones by their side anymore, due to the recent tragedy.

How can you help all the way from Land O' Lakes?

The Sandy Hook Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) recently announced that Sandy Hook students will be relocating to another building to continue school in January. To brighten the students' first day, the PTA is asking for handmade snowflakes from well-wishers across the country, to hang in their new building.

"Please help these students have a 'winter wonderland' at their new school! Get creative. No two snowflakes are alike," they said.

Snowflakes can be made and sent by Jan. 12, 2013 to:

Connecticut PTSA
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 13
Hamden, CT 06514
