It started as a way for one Montana family to talk about the tragic school shooting of 26 children and adults. Now it’s blossoming into an international movement to build a chain of handmade paper hearts to stretch for miles.
The Thompson family will send a first shipment of 10,000 hearts – each linked to another and with its own personal message – later this week.
Much of the participation is coming through the group’s Facebook Page, Paper Hearts Across America.
“Please take a minute to cut out a Paper Heart and write your wishes for the families in Newtown, CT,” says the Page.
“We hope to get enough paper hearts to stretch from our hometown of Billings, MT to Newtown, CT. Send as many as you can to help us send hearts of Love and Support.”
