The Butterfly Effect

I have just discovered this beautiful idea: (thank you Carolyn of whose blog I follow):

It’s a project that has been launched by the Holocaust Museum in Houston, Texas, USA, to remember the 1.5 million children who were murdered in the Holocaust. The idea is to get people to make a butterfly and send it off, so that eventually they will have 1.5 million butterflies, one to commemorate each child who died. They have given us the whole of 2011 to do it, and apart from a few restrictions on size and materials, basically you can make a butterfly to any design you like, and you can make as many butterflies as you like, too.

I think this is such a lovely idea, and I’m keen to get involved. When I eventually find out how to do it, I’m going to put their blinkie on my blog, but in the meantime here’s their picture.


If you are interested in being involved, click on the link above to get the full details. They’ve also got a gallery of all the lovely butterflies they’ve received so far – they are so beautiful!
