Helping The Children of Newtown & MIM 96

If you are any warm blooded human with a heart than I know you have been saddened by the horrific tradgedy in Newtown last week.  I know I have wept over an over for all of the victims and families who's lives were forever changed on that horrible day.  It's so hard to make sense of senseless violence in this world.  Today I was drawn to a blog that I have been to before and I found something that I would like to share with whoever reads this post.  Amber of Damask Love is organizing a wonderful project to help the children of Newtown through art therapy.  She is a pediatric psychologist and she is urging us to help her by sending art supplies to  Newtown Youth & Family Services Center.  The fundraiser is called Drawn Together and if you click on the link, it will take you to Amber's blog to give you all the information on how you can help. 
It really is a wonderful fundraiser and I have made a card this week for the PTI make it monday challenge to include in my package of art supplies.  I encourage you all to do the same.  They are trying to put together creative kits for the children of Newton because art may offer a healthy coping mechanism for children experiencing difficult emotions.  You can make a monetary donation or send art supplies.  Anything would help!
Here is my card for the make it monday challenge and for my donation to Drawn Together!
Please share this information with all of your crafty friends!
Together we can reach a lot of people!

Hug your children a little tighter today and every day like I've been doing
and have a wonderful day!
