Happening now: Make snowflakes for Sandy Hook @ Young at Art

December 30, 2012 at 1:12 pm | In How to help, West Seattle news, WS culture/arts | 3 Comments


Two weeks after the Connecticut school massacre, another school is being made ready for the survivors of Sandy Hook, which may never reopen. It’s to be decorated with snowflakes made by well-wishers from across the country (this update from back East says some have even come from overseas!) – and today, you can be part of a West Seattle contribution. Just stop by Young at Art (5962 Fauntleroy Way SW) before 2 pm.

  1. so I have been hearing rumors that they are asking people to stop sending snowflakes? Does anyone know if this is true? I love the sentiment but want to be sure we don’t work backwards.

  2. I hadn’t heard that, and even checked Connecticut media early today, but looks like there is a note to that effect on the Facebook page for the project, as of this morning.

    Not uncommon for this type of thing – I think really the actual process of making them, and how warm and giving the snowflake-makers were likely feeling at the time, is the real gift …

  3. The below article was one of many a few days ago. Seems they have become overwhelmed with “stuff.” Either way, very nice gesture.
