Collection for Newtown, CT

Amber of Damask Love blog has come up with a terrific idea to help the children of Newtown, Connecticut.

The idea is to assemble at least 50 creative kits filled with art supplies that will be sent to the Newtown Youth & Family Services Center. This center is currently providing counseling and support services to the community and is accepting donations.
Each creative kit will include several items that can be incorporated into the work they are doing with the children and families of Newtown. The kits can also be sent home with children and used with parents to help process this event.

How you can help:
Vendors, companies and individuals are all invited to donate supplies to be included in the creative kits. Below is the need list for completing each kit. To meet the goal, we’ll need at least 50 of each item. You do not need to donate all 50 though! Do what you can and we’ll chip away at this list together!
    • Child-friendly stamps (wood-mounted preferred, since clear stamps require acrylic blocks)
    • Black Ink Pads
    • Plain white cardstock
    • Colored cardstock
    • Patterned Paper
    • Small set of crayons
    • Small set of markers
    • Child scissors
    • Watercolor or Acrylic paint
    • Paintbrushes
    • Alphabet stickers
    • Pencils
    • Glitter
    • Glue or Gluesticks
    • Envelopes
    • 50 small canvas tote bags to package each kit

She's also got a link to Pay Pal if you'd like to donate money towards a kit and is asking for handmade cards too.  Please check her post for ALL the information HERE.  Here's the address to mail items:
