Please Help With a Wonderful Cause

I found this really neat way for all of us to be creative and to be helpful at the same time on my blogger friend, Dawn's blog and she found it on Dan's blog.


The Holocaust Museum in Houston is planning a major exhibition in Spring 2012, to commemorate the 1.5 million children who died during the Holocaust.


And that's where you and I come in


- the exhibition will take the form of a breathtaking display of 1.5 million butterflies, 1 for each child that died needlessly.


The museum is asking for our help. They want crafters/scrapbookers/stampers like us to create the butterflies for them and send them to the museum. This is a wonderful opportunity to be a part of something that is so worthwhile and meaningful! There are no rules other than your butterflies can be no larger than 8" x 10" and must NOT have glitter, or food items on them. You can stamp, use patterned papers and embellishments, paint and inks, whatever is your style.


You can find more information about the project here: http://www.hmh.org/minisite/butterfly/index.html


Dan has some templates on his blog that you can use and the above site has all of the instructions for making and where to send your butterfly.

Thanks!
