The Butterfly Effect

Amazing how one blog leads to another. Today I found a reference to a very special project hosted by the The Holocaust Museum in Texas USA.
The Butterfly Project mandate is to remember the 1,500,000 innocent children who perished as a result of the Holocaust by collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies.
In Spring 2013, these butterflies will become an exhibition to serve as a memory of this event. The project is based on the heart wrenching and poignant poem 'I Never Saw Another Butterfly' by Pavel Friedman who died in Auschwitz in 1944 aged just 23.
The button at left hand side of this blog will take you to the blog of Trudi Sissons who is collecting butterflies from contributors around the world and sending them to the museum. All the details are there for you to read as well as links to the museum.
A most worthwhile project and so easy to participate, please share with other creative friends.

Give to every human being every right that you claim for yourself. ~Robert Ingersoll
