I came across a post on Facebook today that I think represents a really good idea. I know we are all looking for what we can do for our fellow Americans in Newtown, Connecticut after the terrible tragedy they are suffering through. I think this is a great idea and I wanted to share it with you. With something as simple as a paper heart, we can just let them know we are with them.  Maybe we can send a little love to our neighbors! Like their Facebook page while you're at it.

Paper Hearts Across America

This is a grassroots project for the families that lost a loved one or were affected by the Connecticut school shooting. Our goal is to raise awareness, discuss prevention, and help heal our communities. Please
take a minute to cut out a Paper Heart and write your wishes for the families in Newtown, CT. We hope to get enough paper hearts to stretch from our hometown of Billings, MT to Newtown, CT! Send as many as you can and tell others about this. We want to shower them with hearts of Love and Support. Share this from coast to coast to help us reach our goal!
Love, Thompson Family and Friends
Billings, MT
