I am re-posting this because it is such a wonderful idea. Please share with everyone…
From Kimberley Palmer:
This is an idea for ways to help with the tragedy in CT.
“In memory of the recent tragedy in Newtown we are hoping to come together as a community in the thought that those children are our children and show the people of Newtown that we are in this together. So many of us watched the news with broken hearts and a feeling of helplessness. Here is the opportunity for all of us to show our love for Newtown, to let them know they are not alone. To let them know as they piece their lives back together that we are there to shed tears with them, pray with them, and help in anyway we can.
Here is what you can do:
Cut out a paper heart, decorate it, and write a message of love (positive messages only please). Address them to Hearts of Hope and send one or many and mail them to:
Newtown Congregational Church
14 West Street
Newtown, CT 06470
First Church Congregational
148 Beach Road,
Fairfield CT 06824
We are going to take these hearts and cover Newtown with our love from around the world. They will be hung in local businesses, churches, and banks so that no matter where the people of Newtown go they will be surrounded by love and reminded that from this hateful act rose love and support. That humanity is still very much alive and if we band together with love and hope in our hearts we can accomplish so much more. It really does take a village…”

I love this! What a great, tangible way to show that we love and care about those families… and the whole town. This has hurt and touched a lot of people. Thanks for posting this. I’m going to let Miss Chomp help too!
